It's a question that has been asked for the best part of the last decade and will continue to be asked for quite some time in the future.

The question is who is the GOAT of footballers, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?

Millions of debates between millions of fans over and over again and still we really don't have a clear winner, no matter what anyone says or tries to prove.

Both Messi and Ronaldo have achieved incredible things in their careers and while we believe both these legends are GOATs, we take a look at 97 famous, big, meaningful personalities form the world of football, giving their opinion on what they think.

It features legends like Sir Alex Ferguson, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and many others and the video is going pretty viral.

Have a look:

Angel di Maria said, “I had the opportunity to play with both. But I think Messi is different. For me, he’s definitely the best in the world by far, honestly.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: “I think Messi is one of a kind. I don’t think we’ll see another player do the things he does.”

Sir Alex Ferguson: “The thing about Ronaldo - Ronaldo could play for Millwall, Queens Park Rangers, Doncaster Rovers anyone and score a hat-trick in a game. I’m not sure Messi could do that.”

Kylian Mbappe: “Messi. He is still the best in every aspect and the best player in the world.”

In the above video, 97 stars handed their choices and 61 of them chose Messi while 36 went with Ronaldo as their choice for the GOAT.

You might want to think that the voting could be a bit more close, but that isn't the case.

Usually Messi and Ronaldo discussions get difficult but since Argentina's Copa America win this summer, Messi has been labeled the undisputed GOAT by his fans as he gears up to win his seventh Ballon d'Or this year.

Ronaldo, meanwhile will have to come up with either a Champions League win with Juventus this season or win the World Cup with Portugal next year in order to turn the whole discussion on it's head.
