Premier League Pundit Explains Why Cristiano Ronaldo Interview Puts Messi As Better Player

The debate about the better player between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi might have added a new chapter to the rivalry after the Manchester United star vented his frustration on what’s occurring at Old Trafford after his interview with Piers Morgan.

During a segment on talkSPORT Tuesday, Tim Sherwood thinks Ronaldo’s interview cements Messi’s place as the GOAT, which is any angle pundits can use to steer the conversation to the Messi-Ronaldo debate.

“I think it tarnishes his legacy,” Sherwood said. “I think the little man, Lionel Messi, must be sitting in Qatar in his camp, laughing, looking at it from afar because when you ask players who the greatest players who have ever played the game, it’s either Messi or Ronaldo.

It’s a toss up. But, you know, my unconscious bias now is drifting straight toward Lionel Messi just on the top of this [interview].

Messi faced similar struggles in his first season in the French capital but now, in Year 2 with Paris Saint-Germain, the veteran forward has returned to his FC Barcelona self. The Argentine is in good form, with the 2022 FIFA World Cup occurring in a few days.

It will be interesting to see if Ronaldo can see this type of success before his career is over or if this interview will be the highlight in the latter stages of the Portugal international’s playing days.

  1. Lmao,it is a toss up???!!!Omg how dumb can you be,Messi is ten times the player Ronaldo will ever be,scoring tap ins doesn’t even make you better than most strikers!!! And this interview has absolutely nothing to do with this ridiculous forced debate in which Messi is clear!!! Ronaldo can score all the taps he wants,that is all he can do as outside of the box his performances are abysmal!!! Messi does way more than this one dimensional tap in merchant and the longer he plays and continues to be overall crap,the worse his legacy will be!!!
