British tennis star Andy Murray says he disagrees with Sir Alex Ferguson over their choice of the best player in the game. Former Manchester United manager Ferguson picked Cristiano Ronaldo in his dream XI, but Murray told Amazon Prime that he’d rather have Lionel Messi than the Portugal star.
“He took Ronaldo, I guess it’s because he coached him, he knows what he was like and how we was,” Murray said.
“He was just saying how he had everything, could score with his right foot, left foot and head, physically he was unbelievably strong with a great mentality.
“He obviously thought Messi was unbelievable as well but for his all-round game he liked Ronaldo.
“I’d probably take Messi; I love the way that he plays but then I think Ronaldo’s mentality is incredible, I think he’s a great worker and I respect that a lot.”

Both Messi and Ronaldo have been in international action this week, with the Argentina star scoring a brilliant free-kick in his country’s Copa America draw with Chile.
But it is Ronaldo who wrote the bigger headlines, scoring a brace against Hungary as Portugal won their Group F opener 3-0.
Those goals saw the Portuguese captain become the top goalscorer in the history of the European Championships.
Ronaldo is believed to be open to a move away from Juventus this summer.
And the 36-year-old has been linked with a return to Old Trafford, rumours that were only strengthened by comments from his Portugal teammate Bruno Fernandes prior to Euro 2020.

“Every time I speak with him, he asks me how Manchester is and if everything is okay,” the Man Utd midfielder revealed. “Everyone knows he spent a lot of time in Manchester and he has consideration for the club.
“He likes the club, I think he won his first Ballon d’Or here, so it’s a club who’ve marked him, for sure.”
However, former Manchester United defender and current pundit Rio Ferdinand does not think the Ronaldo deal will happen.
Ferdinand told The Sun that he believes a centre-back should be United’s primary transfer priority this summer.
“I don’t think Ronaldo will happen,” Ferdinand said. “That chapter has been written and it’s closed so I don’t think there’s any chance of that happening.
“Defence is the priority and what’s good about the Euros is there will be a good few centre-backs on show there.
“It’s also about who is available. I went to the World Cup and got bought off the back of a good season but also playing at a major tournament.
“This is a great opportunity for someone else to put themselves in the shop window and be purchased by a big club.
“Manchester United are in the market for a centre-back so what an opportunity for someone.”
