The debate as to who the better player between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is rages on, and now the likes of Robin van Persie, David Luiz and Rio Ferdinand have had their say.

BT Sport pundits gave their opinion in the ongoing debate and explained why they favoured one over the other.

"I've played with Ronaldo, so I always favour him," said Ferdinand.

"The difference between them, for me, is he scores different types of goals. He can score every type of goal that you can imagine – Ronaldo scores them."

Paris Saint-Germain defender David Luiz disagrees: "I prefer the style of Messi, but Ronaldo is fantastic also."

Former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie admitted it's a tough decision, but opted for the Argentine.

"I would go for Messi, but it is a very difficult call," he said.

Overall, Messi won the BT Sport debate by six votes to three, with the three stars (Ferdinand, Michael Owen and Owen Hargreaves) who opted for Ronaldo being former United teammates of the Portuguese superstar.
