Trent Alexander-Arnold picks Jordan Henderson when asked: Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo?

TAA picked Henderson over Messi and Ronaldo

The debate over Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo began well over a decade ago and to be honest, we can't see it ever really ending. 

Those two superstars will retire one day, but football fans will eternally argue over who the greatest of all-time really is. 

Don't worry - we're not going to get into the debate too much right now. 

But what if we threw a third name into the mix thanks to Trent Alexander-Arnold? 

The Liverpool defender hosted a Q&A on Twitter on Monday afternoon and was asked who he would rather play with - Messi or Ronaldo? 

Rather than naming either of them, he simply answered 'Hendo'. 

Sure, Reds captain Jordan Henderson has certainly been earning plenty of plaudits over the past few seasons but does TAA really believe him to be a better teammate than Messi or Ronaldo?

Probably not, but Liverpool fans absolutely loved his answer - so much - that it picked up over 21,000 likes in less than an hour.

Alexander-Arnold isn't the only Liverpool star to praise Henderson in recent week. Virgil van Dijk has also been full of good words for his captain. 

Van Dijk has also praised Henderson

"He's our captain. That's what we all respect. He's having a fantastic season so far," the Dutchman said back in December.

"He's been doing fantastically whether he's filling in for Fabinho at the moment or he's playing as a right midfielder where he's giving assists and stuff.

"He has been fantastic, in and out of the pitch he is very important for us whether he plays or not. We all respect him on that level."

Henderson is having a great season

It's not just teammates who are high on Henderson right now, either. Last week, he became odds on favourite to win the PFA Premier League Player of the Year award. 

If he does, there won't be any complaints from Liverpool fans - or Alexander-Arnold - for that matter.
