"Different eras, different times," said Babayaro to Nigeria Info FM.

"It is just like people still trying to compare (Diego) Maradona, Pele, Messi.

"At the moment, Messi is still the number one. Ronaldo is still up there.

"It just depends on who you feel that is the best. But football, like I said, is different eras."

Messi scored 51 goals and assisted a further 22 strikes in 50 matches for the Catalan giants in the 2018/19 campaign.
