Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil delivers verdict on Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo debate with definitive answer

Mesut Ozil opted for Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi when asked for his opinion on one of football’s biggest debates.
The Arsenal player was a teammate of Ronaldo’s at Real Madrid, but his answer suggested he is not one to take the discussion too seriously.

Ozil joked Messi has ‘only’ done the business in Spain, while Ronaldo, who left Man United for Real before joining Juventus, has succeeded in three different countries.
“Messi has proven himself to be one of the best ever in Spain, but Ronaldo was always the best in every country he’s played in,” he wrote in a Twitter Q&A on Monday alongside a winking emoji.
Ozil was good friends with Ronaldo at the Bernabeu and the pair shared great success in the Spanish capital, winning a LaLiga title, a Copa del Rey and the Spanish Supercopa.
The former Germany international spent three years with the Spanish giants before sealing a move to Arsenal in 2013.

Recent reports, however, suggest that Ozil could leave the Emirates Stadium this month as his career rolls onto a new chapter.
He’s been linked with an MLS move, while Turkish club Fenerbahce have also been tipped to sign the World Cup winner.
However, talkSPORT’s Andy Brassell doubts the move to Fenerbahce will happen, with Ozil understood to be earning £350,000-a-week at Arsenal.
“Fenerbahce can’t afford this, there’s no way they can afford this,” Brassell said on Sunday’s Trans Europe Express.

“It wouldn’t be the first time in recent history that a Turkish Super Lig club made a transfer deal they couldn’t really afford.
“Especially with Arsenal’s unwillingness to pay any of the wages whatsoever, this is way beyond what Fenerbahce were looking at.
“Bringing Mesut Ozil back to Turkey would be a massive deal for any club; a lot of people thought it would be Istanbul Basaksehir, but that doesn’t seem to be on the table at the moment, particular because they are marooned in midtable whereas Fenerbahce are chasing the title.
“To me, MLS makes a lot better sense.”
However, his agent Dr Erkut Sogut appeared to suggest a move to Turkey was very much on the cards.
“Everyone knows that Mesut is from Fenerbahce. He announced it yesterday. Mesut is not just a football player. Mesut is Fenerbahce.”
“He always said that if he came to Turkey, he would only play for Fenerbahce.
“I think it is very important that Mesut comes not only as a footballer but also as a lover of Fenerbahce.”
“There is a process at the moment. We can’t say it’s over until we’ve signed it in the process. I hope so.”
