Wayne Rooney, a Manchester United star, believes that Manchester City’s Erling Haaland and Paris Saint-Kylian Germain’s Mbappe are currently better than Argentina captain Lionel Messi and Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo.
Rooney also stated that it is nearly impossible for both Haaland and Mbappe to replicate the careers of Messi and Ronaldo.
Speaking on Sports18, Rooney said, “Haaland and Mbappe, of course, the next two, at this moment of time, they’re obviously better than Messi and Ronaldo.
“But for them to emulate the career that Messi and Ronaldo have had, I can’t see it.”
The former England international added, “What Messi and Ronaldo have done is unique in the world of football.
“For Messi and Ronaldo to do it at the same time in the same league for a long time, I don’t think we will see that again.”
