Messi vs Ronaldo: I wish I could be like him – John Stones chooses best player
Manchester City defender, John Stones, has joined the debate on who is the best player between Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi.
Speaking on Kit Collector (via Goal), Stones said picked Messi ahead of Ronaldo when asked to choose between both Ballon d’Or winners.
Stones also believes that the question does not have a definitive answer and it is up to people where their allegiance lies.
The England international added that he wished he could be like the Argentine captain.
“It is Messi for me. I don’t think there’s a right or wrong answer though – it is just personal preference,” Stones said.
He added: “I wish I could be like Messi with the ball and do what he can do and score goals. On the other hand, what Ronaldo brings physically and with different kinds of goals – they are both so good.”
