Premier League Star Joins Lionel Messi Vs Cristiano Ronaldo Debate

Premier League Star Joins Lionel Messi Vs Cristiano Ronaldo Debate

Former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has had his say on modern football's most dividing question: who is the best, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?

The French midfielder has joined mid-table battlers West Ham, where he has been reunited with ex-Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini.

Nasri started his first Hammers game against former team Arsenal. He set-up the only goal of the game in an impressive 1-0 win.

Media duties for the two-time Premier League champion saw him answer a set of either/or questions, where, of course, that famous Messi and Ronaldo debate was brought-up.

With little hesitation, Nasri answered: "Lionel Messi, just because I think he is gifted by God.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is more of a professional, hard-working guy.

"Ronaldo is the example you follow."

Although it's still too early to call, it seems Nasri is relishing the opportunity of top-flight English football. He left Manchester City on loan to Sevilla before a permanent move to Turkish side Antalyaspor.

Nasri has faced both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on the pitch, but it's probably not enough to put this debate to bed - despite the refreshing directness of it.
