Manchester United star, Paul Pogba has opened up on the age old debate on who is a better player between Barcelona icon, Lionel Messi and Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo - with the Frenchman preferring to not choose one over the other.

Messi and Ronaldo are widely considered to be the two greatest players in the history of the sport, with the duo dominating football for more than a decade as seen by the combined 11 Ballon d'Or awards they have between themselves.

Pogba for his part stated that it is very difficult for him to choose between the two icons of the sport.

"It’s a nice but tricky question, as there is no best for me. Two different players. They are two players who both bring joy to watch. Any people are going to have their own opinion of them, just two legends," he said at as part of a Q&A in United’s matchday programme.

"Me, I would just say they are two legends and not one is better than the other one. Just two people that give us football players, or football lovers, joy to watch."

Despite the Frenchman not picking one over the other, there is no difference that the fans have been blessed to have seen arguably two of the greatest play in the same era.
