Lionel Messi will be laughing at Cristiano Ronaldo’s bombshell interview after he tarnished his Man Utd legacy.
From the Argentina World Cup training camp in Qatar, Lionel Messi will be “laughing” at the way Cristiano Ronaldo ‘tarnished’ his Manchester United legacy in his shocking interview.
According to former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood, Ronaldo’s revelations in his shocking interview with TalkTV host Piers Morgan have left him “astounded.”
After clips from his upcoming interview with Morgan circulated on social media, Ronaldo, 37, shocked the world.
The United player attacked Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag harshly and was unrelenting in his criticism of ex-teammates Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville.
And during his sit-down conversation with Morgan, Ronaldo, who has a contract with Real Madrid through 2023, also made scathing jabs at the Glazer family and former United manager Ralf Rangnick.
After the explosive interview, United released a statement and vowed to comment “once the full facts have been established.”
Argentina will be led by Messi in what is likely his final World Cup, and Lionel Scaloni’s team is expected to prevail in Qatar.
Fans frequently compare the 35-year-old superstar of Paris Saint-Germain to Ronaldo in the so-called “debate for the football GOAT.”
After Ronaldo publicly criticized United for how he has been treated this season, Sherwood has now claimed that his “unconscious bias is now drifting towards” Messi.
He told talkSPORT, “I really don’t think what Ronaldo is saying is groundbreaking.
“I think the fact that he came and said it so publicly and obviously done on a huge platform is more groundbreaking.
“He had the choice between Oprah Winfrey and Piers Morgan, but he chose the English option.
I’m shocked that he came forward and did it; I believe it tarnishes his reputation.
“When you ask players who the best players in the history of the game are, it’s either Messi or Ronaldo, it’s a toss-up, so I imagine the little man Lionel Messi must be sitting in Qatar in his camp laughing, watching it from a distance.
But on top of this, my unintentional bias is now leaning toward Lionel Messi, which is really unfortunate.
