A whole host of footballers, managers, pundits and footballing figures have had their say on who is the GOAT out of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

It's an age-old argument between the Barcelona captain and Juventus star, with their rivalry being one that is the stuff of legends.

Ronaldo has not been afraid to claim that he is the greatest player of all time, while SPORTbible readers voted Messi as the GOAT back in 2018.

Now, Twitter user Ryan has compiled a thread consisting of ex-footballers, managers, current players and other footballing figures who have picked Messi over Ronaldo.

While the thread has more than 100 tweets, we have handpicked a nice selection.
