Cahill, who made 226 appearances in PL, surprisingly picked Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi.

He said – “The reason why I say Ronaldo, I know people won’t agree, is because of what he’s done in Juventus”.

“He left Real Madrid, went there (to Juventus) and had such a massive impact on another league. I’ve never seen another player do it…at Man United, Madrid for so many years.

“And I know he didn’t win the Champions League but he has such an impact in any club. If you can take players and put them somewhere at his age… I know people won’t agree, I just appreciate his professionalism,” he added.

Both the legends holds 5 Ballon d’Or each with the Argentine scoring 50 goals and 22 assists in 49 appearances.
