DC United striker Rooney: Messi v Ronaldo? That's easy...

DC United striker Wayne Rooney says former Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo isn't the best in the world.

Ronaldo has just signed for Juventus, while Rooney made his debut with DC United last weekend.

Appearing on the Pardon My Take podcast on Monday, Rooney was asked who's the better player between Ronaldo and Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

"Messi," replied Rooney instantly, surprising the radio hosts with the speed of his answer.

"Yeah I think I've said this before but they're both probably the best two players to ever play the game.

"I just think Messi is, in my eyes, the greatest ever."
