Darwin Nunez gives hilarious response when asked Messi or Ronaldo

Darwin Nunez gave a hilarious response when asked to pick between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Liverpool star has weighed in on the Messi vs. Ronaldo debate, but didn't name either superstar when he gave his answer.
A fan quizzed the Uruguayan forward as he went out to sign some autographs. He happened to be alongside Mohamed Salah and opted for his Liverpool teammate.
The Egyptian forward was signing autographs at the time of Nunez's answer and didn't seem to know the nature of the question when his name was said.
Salah has recorded Messi/Ronaldo-like numbers since joining Liverpool in 2017.
He's scored a staggering 172 goals for the club, having scored an impressive 31 goals last season.
And he's in fine for this term, bagging 16 goals in 23 games in all competitions.
As for Nunez, he has nine goals to his name this season and starred in his side's win over Aston Villa on Boxing Day.
But he failed to get on the score-sheet against Villa, though Jurgen Klopp isn't worried about his form and recently compared him to Robert Lewandowski, who he had at Borussia Dortmund during his time in charge of the German club.
"Going back to that time, I was sitting in a press conference and when I started playing Lewandowski the journalists asked me why (Lucas) Barrios was not playing," explained the Liverpool boss. "Lucas Barrios had scored 16 goals that season and was the number nine in our team.
"So Lewi started playing in different positions to adapt to different things, didn’t like it too much. The Polish journalists were not too friendly with me because he didn’t play number 10, he played in a 4-2-3-1 at 10.
"I thought at that time it made absolute sense to develop his game. So all different things."
Klopp added: "There are a lot of similarities (with Nunez) to be honest. Lewi would tell the same story, we had shooting sessions where he didn’t finish off one. We had bets all the time for €10 - 'if you score more than 10 times I will pay you €10, if you don’t you have to pay me'. My pocket was full of money."
