Bayern Munich forward, Thomas Muller has come out to suggest that he would pick Robert Lewandowski ahead of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.
He, however, agreed that Messi and Ronaldo are outstanding and cannot be compared to other soccer players.
According to him, he has won and lost games vs Messi and Ronaldo and they were always outstanding during those matches because they keep playing at the limit.
He added that despite their individual brilliance on the pitch, both incredible footballers still need a team to shine during games, which is why football is such a unique sport.
His words, “Maybe in my past years I would like to play with Leo Messi, because in the first six or seven years of my career, I was more the receiving striker,”
“I got the ball in the box and tried to score. In the moment right now, in my very good shape at the moment, I assist many goals.
“Maybe now I need more a Cristiano Ronaldo to score the goals, but we at Bayern have Robert ‘Lewan-goal-ski’! I think maybe right now he is the better option than Cristiano.
“I played against both [Messi and Ronaldo], I won against both, I lost against both.
“They are very, very good, they are special, they are not like normal very good players in the world of football. They are outstanding because they play always at the limit.
“Always, their whole 10 years, they score 50 goals each year. That’s crazy.
“On my way to the World Cup, we won with Germany against both. On my way to several Champions League finals, we won against both.
“Every football player needs also the team, and that’s why we love football so much.”
