Piers Morgan has once again heaped praises on Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting that the Manchester United striker has proved he is the greatest player of all time with his stunning hat-trick against Tottenham.
Recall, Ronaldo has received criticism this season due to Manchester United’s struggling form, as well as his own personal struggles in front of goal in several games.
However, on Saturday, the 37-year-old produced a brilliant match-winning performance in an important victory in the fight to finish in the top four.
Commenting on Ronaldo’s performance, Morgan said: ‘But the real point he proved in scoring his 805, 806 and 807 career goals, taking him past Czech legend Josef Bican to become the top goal-scorer in football history, is that Cristiano Ronaldo is now indisputably the greatest player ever.’
While Ronaldo was able to hit top form last weekend, Lionel Messi endured a tough weekend despite Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 victory over Bordeaux.
Messi, along with Neymar, were booed by PSG supporters who are still angry over the nature of their Champions League exit to Real Madrid.
PSG were 2-0 up in the tie only to collapse, with Karim Benzema scoring a 17-minute hat-trick.
Morgan who is clearly a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi, described the PSG star as a ‘flat-trick bully’.
He said: ‘For me, it comes down to this: Messi is a genius, no question, but I’ve long suspected he’s what cricket fans would call a ‘flat-track bully.’
‘For the first 17 years of his career, he only ever played for one club, Barcelona, where he was always surrounded by whole teams of world class players.
‘From the moment he left Spain and was taken out of his heavily protected comfort zone, he’s faded faster than my taste buds after I caught Covid.’
