EPL: Plays for the team – Martial snubs Ronaldo names Rooney as best player
Anthony Martial has snubbed Cristiano Ronaldo as he names the best player he has ever played with.
Martial joined Manchester United in 2015 and spent two years playing alongside then Red Devils’ captain Rooney.
The former England captain, Rooney would later leave Manchester United for Everton while Martial has shared a dressing room with Ronaldo since last summer.
The France international does not see the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who was Manchester United’s top scorer last season, as the best player he has played alongside.
The Frenchman striker picked Rooney and it was the selflessness of the former England star that really stood out for Martial.
“We have spoken about being genuine and so I can speak about Wayne Rooney. He’s the best player I have played with,” he told France Football.
“He’s always playing for the team, always at 100%, no fuss. A monster. And a model as a footballer.”
