Cristiano Ronaldo

Declan Rice is a big fan of two of the all-time greats, with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo setting wonderful standards.


What did Rice say about Cristiano Ronaldo?

The West Ham midfielder has seen a move to Man Utd speculated that it could allow him to work alongside Ronaldo, with Rice saying the Portuguese is a player he will turn to for inspiration on big occasions.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has established himself as the most reliable of the options for Man Utd, Juve and Real Madrid, with a remarkable goalscoring record, seeing him break countless records over the years. Declan is a big fan and admits that a man still going strong with Man Utd at 36 will be his choice to step up and take a nerve-wracking fine that has been a lot of riding on him.

Declan Rice told Neville on the air when asked who he would choose to stand over the decisive snout, what Ronaldo would have to say – 100 percent Ronaldo. According to Declan Rice, Cristiano Ronaldo scored a penalty in big moments, Champions League finals, tournaments. Rice would 100% put his money on CR7 for big occasions.


Lionel Messi is just special

Cristiano’s penalty record is more than helpful, converting 143 career 12-yard efforts to date while allowing just 28. His archrival, the Argentine, fell short with 29 points he took while scoring 103 for club and country, and the merciful Lionel Messi is another player that Declan ranks in the highest regard.

In fact, Skipper Hammers considers the South American icon to be the best talent ever to play the game, a claim that’s hard to argue with, given all that the man with seven Ballon d’Or awards to his name has accomplished.

Declan said when asked about his acceptance into the Cristiano vs. Lionel debate that you know what, it’s such a tough question because obviously what he and Ronaldo did is a freak of nature, no one will ever do that ever again.

According to Declan Rice, he just feels like Messi is doing football, he’s just special and Rice doesn’t think they’ll ever see a player like him again. Declan will hope to make the same Champions League stage as Cristiano and Lionel at some point in the near future, with a lot of speculation as to its future.

West Ham remain on the hunt for a quad finish this season, but the talented Declan Rice continues to see moves into PL rivals in training – with Chelsea and Man Utd said to be keeping a close eye on their situation.
