Alexis Sanchez snubs Messi, Ronaldo, names best footballer ever

 Former Arsenal and Barcelona striker, Alexis Sanchez, has snubbed Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo while naming Brazilian legend Ronaldo Nazario as the best footballer ever.

Sanchez played alongside Messi during their time together at Barcelona.

The pair won the La Liga title in the 2011-2012 season, among other trophies.

Although Sanchez was never teammates with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Chile international played against the Portugal international 17 times.

Speaking on the GOAT debate, Sanchez said (via MD Futbol): “Ronaldo [Brazilian Ronaldo], the Phenomenon for me, is the world number one.

“I have played with many strong players, I have seen Messi and Ronaldo up close, but he is something else.

“When he made that fake and went at a mile an hour, it was incredible, a beautiful thing to see in football.”
