Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore's star batsman Devdutt Padikkal has handed out his opinion on who he thinks is better, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi?

Football fans across the world are locked in a heated debate for more than a decade with regards to who is the greatest footballer of all time between these two legends.

The debate ranges so far and wide and sportsmen from outside football too hand in their opinion from time to time.

In a short interview with ESPN Cricinfo, Royal Challengers Bangalore's opening batsman, who is a Manchester United fan, Devdutt Padikkal was asked who he would choose as football's greatest, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.

Padikkal had no second thoughts before choosing Ronaldo as his GOAT over Messi. He was then asked whether his choice was because he was a Manchester United fan, to which he replied, "Yeah."

United fans do have affection for Ronaldo till date and many still hope and wish for him to end his career at the Theatre of Dreams.

Ronaldo, meanwhile has endured a tough season with Juventus. On a personal level, he has been excellent when it comes to goalscoring, but the Portuguese hasn't been supported enough in his team to challenge for the Champions League this season, yet again.
