Cristiano Ronaldo, ‘the greatest of all time’, says Argentinian Garnacho; ‘You haven’t played with Messi yet,’ quips Aguero
If you’ve followed football in the recent past, it’s highly unlikely you haven’t been part of the decade-long debate about Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi. The two big names in the modern game have always divided the world of football, with each team having loyal supporters.
Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho, the 17-year-old Argentine starlet, had a big day on Saturday when he was made a substitute in United’s game against Norwich. After the match, he received the match ball from Ronaldo, which marked his 50th club hat-trick.
To commemorate the day, the youngster posted a photo of himself alongside Ronaldo on Instagram after the game with the caption ‘Greatest of all time’.
Garnacho, a lifelong Ronaldo fan who was recently called up to the Argentina senior team, received a cheeky message from Sergio Aguero after this Instagram post.
“Porque todavía no jugaste con el mejor pa @leomessi,” the former Manchester City striker wrote in Spanish under Garnacho’s Ronaldo picture, which translates to “because you haven’t played with Lionel Messi yet.”
Ronaldo’s brilliance earned United three valuable points against the league’s bottom side as the top-4 race heats up as Tottenham and Arsenal both suffered 1-0 defeats to Brighton and Southampton respectively.
