Manchester United legends, Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand, have shared their picks between their former teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.
Both Ronaldo and Rooney were phenomenal during their time at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo made 346 appearances for Man United across two spells, scoring 145 goals and registering 64 assists. He won 13 major trophies with the club, including one Champions League, one FIFA Club World Cup, and three Premier League titles.
Rooney, meanwhile, made 559 appearances for Man United. He scored 253 goals and registered 145 assists in 559 games. The former England international is the Red Devils’ highest goalscorer in history, as he won a total of 18 major trophies.

While choosing between Ronaldo and Rooney, Evra said on Ferdinand’s FIVE YouTube channel, “No, prime Cristiano. I love Wazza but I think when Cristiano left in 2009 and we played a World Tour match in Asia, that’s when I knew (the capability) of Wayne Rooney, the player he was. I think he was in the shadow of Cristiano, even if they both started well, I realized who was Wayne Rooney when Cristiano Ronaldo left.”
On his part, Ferdinand said, “I would say Cristiano but that doesn’t take away from Wazza, he was a ridiculous footballer, I even reckon he was one of the most underrated English players.”
