Man Utd defender Bailly: Messi v Ronaldo? Give me Ramos

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly says he's a big fan of Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

Asked for his take on the age-old debate about Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, Bailly ducked the question.

He told Guillem Balague's YouTube channel: “My greatest inspiration has always been Ramos. I've admired him for a long time, because of what he does in football and how he keeps going at a high level.

“For me, he's one of the best players in the history of football. Everyone has an opinion, but he is one of the best, the perfect reference point for me.

“If you ask me, Messi or Ronaldo, I'd say Ramos."
