Ronaldo responds to being told “Messi is better”
Ronaldo responds: Cristiano Ronaldo was heckled by a Lionel Messi supporter during Al-home Nassr’s game against Al-Batin on Friday, but the five-time Ballon d’Or winner did not appear overly concerned. Cristiano Ronaldo’s frustrations were evident after the 3-1 victory for Al-Nassr over Al-Batin.
Renzo Lopez gave Al-Batin the lead in the 17th minute, shocking table-toppers Al-Nassr, who had been widely predicted to win the Saudi Professional League match against the bottom side. At the interval, the score remained 1-0.
Ronaldo was upset with his team’s performance in the first half, and his annoyance increased when a supporter yelled at him as he was leaving the field. Messi is so much better than you, the jeerer yelled. Responding, Ronaldo “An effortless match! An effortless match!”
The Portugal international is thought to have been referring to Friday’s match rather than Messi, with whom he has long-standing animosity. Since Ronaldo won his first Ballon d’Or in 2008, the two superstars have shared 12 victories.
For a while, Mrsool Park, the home field of Al-Nassr, looked like it might be the site of a historic victory for Al-Batin. But, Ronaldo’s team secured a thrilling victory with three goals in extra time from Abdulrahman Ghareeb, Mohammed Al-Fatil, and Mohammed Maran.
The captain of the Saudi club, Ronaldo, who joined Al-Nassr on a free transfer in January, expressed his happiness with their comeback on Instagram. Five-time Champions League champion said to his 556 million fans: “Never lose hope till the very end! Vamos!”
Despite not scoring on Friday, Ronaldo’s stay in Saudi Arabia is going well. In six Saudi Professional League games, the 38-year-old had eight goals and two assists. Talisca, a teammate from Al-Nassr, leads the division in goals scored with 13.
Ronaldo was crowned the league’s Player of the Month for February as a result of his outstanding start to life in Saudi Arabia. The forward proclaimed himself “glad” with the honour. Said he, “I hope this is only the beginning! I’m honoured to play for this group.”
Al-victory Nassr’s on Friday marked their fourth straight league triumph. With 11 games left, they are still two points ahead of Al-Ittihad at the top of the standings.
Messi’s Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid faced out against one another in LaLiga and the Champions League from 2009 to 2018. Football fans have long argued over who the sport’s “GOAT” player is (greatest of all time).
Ronaldo has five Champions League victories, one more than Messi, and the most goals in men’s international football history. Nonetheless, the Argentine has won the Ballon d’Or twice more than Ronaldo, and this advantage is anticipated to grow in the coming months.
Messi appears to have won the argument after leading Argentina to victory at the World Cup in Qatar last year. Messi plays for Paris Saint-Germain. Ronaldo’s trophy cabinet now contains all but one award, which Messi has now won. Hence, the jeerer.
