“If Messi had the morals of Ronaldo, he would have won 15 Ballons d’Or,” are the last words of Patrice Evra.

When asked to choose between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo during a YouTube broadcast, Patrice Evra clearly took sides with the Portuguese. According to the French player, his former teammate has a much better work ethic than the Argentine.

This is the controversy that must have stirred football fans for decades. Patrice Evra chose his camp. After being invited to the ‘FIVE’ YouTube channel alongside Rio Ferdinand, the former France international said that when it comes to choosing between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, he is clearly on the side of the Portuguese fans.

“I want to explain why I choose Ronaldo every time. Not because he’s my brother, but because I’m fond of his work ethic,” explains Patrice Evra (who’s 14′ 13″ in the video below). As a reminder, the former tricolor worked with CR7 at Manchester United between the years 2006 and 2009.

“Messi God gave him talent”

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who are unanimously considered the best players of the 21st century, have been buzzing the counters for fifteen years. Between 2008 and 2021, the Argentine and Portuguese have significantly dominated the Ballon d’Or, with seven and five titles respectively. Even if, according to Patrice Evra, the Paris striker could have put his name on the list of the prestigious individual trophy several times.

“I feel like Messi, God gave him talent and Cristiano had to work for it. He had the talent, but he had to work for it. If Messi had the same work ethic as Cristiano Ronaldo, he would probably have a 15-ball role, I love people who work hard, and that’s why I chose Ronaldo over Messi,” concluded the former Red Devils player.
