Ruud van Nistelrooy claims 'nobody comes close' to Lionel Messi 

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy praised Barcelona captain Lionel Messi, Daily Mail reported

“There is no-one who is at his level, he seems to play like a Playstation player”, the former Holland striker told Sport. “Nobody comes close to Messi. Tell me who... Cristiano (Ronaldo) is a goal scorer, (Andres) Iniesta is a brain, (Mohamed) Salah, (Sadio) Mané, (Eden) Hazard and (Kylian) Mbappé are excellent players, but Messi is all that together.”
