John Terry snubs Cristiano Ronaldo in response to hardest player he’s come up against


Former Chelsea captain John Terry has snubbed Manchester United’s star Cristiano Ronaldo as the toughest player he’s played against in favour of Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho.

Terry answered the question on his Instagram account when hosting a Q&A session on Sunday evening.

The former England international answered a range of topics from if he ever wanted to play abroad to his favourite golf courses.

Terry also revealed he didn’t care about Wayne Rooney wearing longer studs against him – as Chelsea won 3-0, and the title, anyway.

But it was his answer to the toughest player he’s faced that caught the eye as there was no room for Ronaldo.
