Brighton attacker, Kaoru Mitoma has given a surprise answer when asked to choose between Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Mitoma recently sat down for a rapid-fire question and answer session, where he was asked to settle the ultimate footballing debate on who is the better player between Messi and Ronaldo.
Responding to the query, Mitoma was unable to choose between both Ballon d’Or winners.
The Japan international simply said (via ESPN): “Both.”
Mitoma was signed by Brighton from Japanese club Kawasaki Frontale for £2.6 million in the summer of 2021.
He scored 10 goals and registered eight assists in 41 appearances across competitions for Brighton last season.
This season, he has started well, managing three assists and a goal from five appearances for Brighton.
