Mikel who is with the Super Eagles team in Alexandria, Egypt getting set for their Africa Cup of Nations opener against Burundi was asked to name the best between the two stars.
Mikel answering it didn’t even bother to say anything about Ronaldo but stressed that Messi is from a different planet.
“The best is Messi all day. For me, he’s from a different planet.
“I feel so grateful playing against him so many times – from the U20s to last summer’s World Cup. I’m so privilege to have done that,” added Mikel.
