Rafael Leao betrays one of his teammates, as he picks who is more handsome between Olivier Giroud and Cristiano Ronaldo.

AC Milan winger Rafael Leao has revealed who he believes is more handsome between Cristiano Ronaldo and Olivier Giroud in a recent interview. 

Portugal and Al-Nassr Ronaldo, and former Chelsea striker Giroud are two of the most generally regarded eye candies in the round leather game.

And although both players are highly placed on the aesthetics spectrum, Leao believes distinction can be found between both players as one is even superior looking.

Leao's relationship with Ronaldo and Giroud

The former Sporting Lisbon winger is one of the few that share or have shared a dressing room with both players.

Ronaldo is the Milan man's national team captain and idol. They also favour a similar position on the football pitch, the left side of attack. 

Leao's relationship with Giroud is more day-to-day, as they are Rossoneri teammates, and they combined a good number of times to deliver the seven-time Champions League winners the 2021/22 Scudetto title, their first in 10 years.

What Leao said

The Portugal international is currently with the Rossoneri in their tour of America where they have played against Juventus and Real Madrid so far, and are set to play Barcelona on August 2nd.

As part of the press rounds during the tour, the winger had an interview with ESPN FC, where he was jovially asked about his teammates' looks. 

When asked who he thinks is more handsome between Cristiano and Giroud, Leao indulged, picking his national team captain over his fellow Rossoneri. 

"I think…Maybe, maybe Ronaldo yh," Leao answered when asked to pick between the two. 

Leao and Giroud will expectedly form a new attacking trident for Milan next season, which will include Super Eagles' Samuel Chukwueze as the third prong. 

As Pulse Sports reported previously, the Serie A giants have completed the signing of the Nigeria International Chukwueze.

We can confirm that the winger has joined the Italian club from LALIGA side CF Villarreal on a long-term contract for €20 million.
