Manchester United legend and current Wales boss, Ryan Giggs, gave an exclusive interview to DAZN where he was asked the eternal question: "Messi or Cristiano?"

"Obviously I lean towards Ronaldo a little bit because I played with him and saw him develop as a player. But Messi is a genius, he's a once in a lifetime player. It's as simple as that."

Giggs also spoke about Gareth Bale's uncomfortable situation at Real Madrid. "It's strange. From the outside, it looks strange. For the quality he possesses and what he's won there: four Champions Leagues. I'm his coach for Wales, he's recently been my captain, and is a good professional. He's a player that can turn a game on its head like he did against Liverpool for (Real) Madrid."
