Ghana Legend Asamoah Gyan Details Difference Between Ronaldo and Messi
- Asamoah Gyan has shared his stance on the GOAT debate between Ronaldo and Messi.
- The former Ghana striker believes Messi is a better team player than Ronaldo.
- The two players share 12 Ballon d'Or awards between them.
Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan believes Lionel Messi is more talented than Cristiano Ronaldo.
The legendary Ghanaian forward insists he would rather have the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner as his teammate than the former Manchester United striker.
According to Gyan, both players are incredibly good, but Messi is naturally gifted while Ronaldo has worked hard to achieve his success.
"For me, I feel Messi is gifted. You need Messi in your team more than Ronaldo,” he told Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV as quoted by Pulse.

“I admire Ronaldo because of his hard work. He has really worked hard to get to where he is. He is someone who can't go two days without training because he would feel he can't play anymore but Messi can sit for two weeks and do a little shake-up and will still perform. So, there is that difference."
"I think Messi will be better in my team because he can take five players out easily," added Gyan.
Messi led Argentina to a third World Cup triumph after starring for the South Americans in Qatar late last year.
With both players at the twilight of their careers, the argument about who the greatest of all-time is continues to rage on.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo left Manchester United to join Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr in the winter transfer window.
