Aston Villa star Alisha Lehmann has offered her two cents on the Cristiano Ronaldo vs Lionel Messi debate after responding to a fan’s burning question.
But Paris Saint-Germain star Messi and Manchester United legend Ronaldo are often pitted against one another, by fans, in the so-called GOAT debate.
Ronaldo has been placed ahead of Messi as the best player of all time by several key figures, including Sir Alex Ferguson, Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Pele.
Meanwhile, the likes of David Beckham, Thierry Henry, Paul Scholes and Diego Maradona have all endorsed Messi ahead of Ronaldo.
Now, Lehmann was approached by one fan over where her allegiance lay between Messi and Ronaldo in one of football’s most burning questions.
When asked to pick between Messi and Ronaldo, she wasted no time in picking the Portugal captain over the Argentina skipper.
“Ronaldo,” Lehmann said in the video (posted above), before walking away with a smile on her face.
One fan commented: “She knows ball.”
Someone else posted: “The GOAT has spoken.”
“She’s not wrong,” another person added.
While a fourth said: “Pretty obvious. Didn’t know she was a W.”
Lehmann, who wears No 7 much like Ronaldo, hasn’t been afraid to show her admiration for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
The Villa star previously took a page out of Ronaldo’s book by using his trademark ‘si’ celebration after scoring against Manchester City Women in the Women’s Super League.
Lehmann recently split with fellow Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz after they reportedly argued about her racy calendar.
The 23-year-old Switzerland international, who is bisexual, has been selling her 2023 calendar for £29.99 a pop on her store page.
However, a signed copy of the Lehmann calendar will set fans back a cool £49.99.
