Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo: Jose Mourinho settles the GOAT debate with brilliant answer

Fenerbahce manager Jose Mourinho has given his opinion on the eternal debate on who the greatest footballer of all time is between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Messi and Ronaldo are seen as two of the best players of all time, and both have competed at the top level for over 15 years, changing the face of the sport.

They have a combined 13 Ballon d’Or awards, with the Argentina captain having eight after winning his record-extending award last year following Argentina’s World Cup triumph in Qatar.

Both are in the final years of their careers and have left European football to play in the Major League Soccer and Saudi Professional League with Inter Miami and Al-Nassr.

The 2024 European Championship and Copa America kicks off in a few days. Both men are expected to lead their team to a major tournament for possibly the last time in their career.

Mourinho, answering quick-fire questions on TNT Sports, was asked who was the player he never signed but wished he did, and his answer appears to settle the GOAT debate.

“Of course, the little guy, that little guy was not coachable, but I have to say in our generation, he [Messi] was the best,” he said.

This would shock some football fans who believe the Special One should have sided with his compatriot and the player he coached for three seasons.
