?Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil has come down on the side of Cristiano Ronaldo in the never-ending debate of who the greatest player is between the Real Madrid star and Lionel Messi.
The former ?Real Madrid midfielder threw his two cents in to one of the biggest debates in world football during a mock press conference devised by ?Sky Sports.
A young group of Arsenal fans were putting questions to the German international and asked for his opinion on the subject.
Upon being asked the unoriginal question, Ozil replied: “I will go for Ronaldo because I played with him.”

His no-nonsense answer on the day represented something of a shift it seemed, with the Gunner having reluctantly ducked the same question last year, jesting that Zinedine Zidane was the best.
Ronaldo and Messi are tied on five Ballon d’Or awards each during their frightening careers and have been virtually impossible to split. It’s safe to say there’s no consensus as of yet and won’t be for some time.
