Popular Ghanaian actor, Yaw Dabo has waded into the debate over who the best is between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The legendary duo have divided opinions over the last two decades following their outstanding performances for their clubs and countries.
Dabo, who runs an academy in Ghana, believes Ronaldo is miles ahead of seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi.
"To me, Ronaldo is far better than Messi. I say it with all jealousy. What Ronaldo has done in football is far better than Messi. Unless Messi gets born again it would be difficult for him to break the records of Ronaldo,” the actor said on Nhyria FM as quoted by Pulse.

Ronaldo's future at Manchester United remains in limbo after stating his interest of leaving the club last month. On Sunday, he left the team immediately he was subbed in a friendly against Rayo Vellacano.
“I want him to leave because Manchester United as a team have disgraced him. How can he be playing with players like Lindeloff and Maguire? If not for one of his hat tricks we wouldn’t have won a match. If he hadn’t come last season, we would have placed 10th," the actor added.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi scored as Paris Saint Germain beat FC Nantes to win the French Super Cup. He was also named player of the match.
