Manchester United Legend, David Beckham has rated Barcelona and Argentine forward, Lionel Messi above Cristiano Ronaldo.

Beckham believes the Argentine playmaker is a better player than a man who inherited his shirt at Old Trafford, Ronaldo.

The duo (Ronaldo and Messi) have dominated the football world for more than a decade, with the pair scoring more than 1000 goals collectively.

However, the debate will forever be on the mouth of football enthusiasts for years to come which has made the former England Captain, Beckham weighed in on the debate, pitching his tent with Lionel Messi.

"He [Messi] is alone in his class as a player, it is impossible that there is another like him."

"He , like Cristiano Ronaldo, who is not at his level, are both above the rest." Beckham told Telam in an interview.

Ronaldo currently plies his trade in the Italian Serie A with Juventus does possess the physicality prowess and relentless ambition his Barcelona counterpart, Messi is apparently lacking.

Messi on the other hand has mesmerized fans of the round leather game countless times with mazy dribbling ability and his amazing final touch on the ball to put it at the back of the net.

The former LA Galaxy midfielder had at some point come across Lionel Messi in a Champions League knockout stage during his days at PSG. But not too long after that period, Beckham called time on his career as a Footballer.
