According to SPORTbible, a former Barcelona midfielder has slammed former Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo for declaring himself the GOAT. When he was at the Spanish club in 2017, Ronaldo declared himself to be the best player the world had ever seen.
Ronaldo, who has complete faith in himself, declared himself the greatest footballer of all time after winning his fifth Ballon d'Or.
I can't think of someone who is better than myself. No player does anything I can't do, but I see things that others can't "There isn't a more well-rounded player than me. In both good and bad times, I'm the best player in history." "Messi does more things than Cristiano," Xavi remarked through GiveMeSport in an interview with Tot Costa de Catalunya Ràdio.
That's good if Cristiano fancies himself the greatest player in history, but those of us who have seen him train know there is no comparison. Messi is the greatest player in history, and we don't think otherwise." Messi's quality, according to the silky midfielder, always comes to the fore - in a manner that Ronaldo's might not. Messi has been warned that he does not deserve to win the Ballon d'Or in 2021.
Meanwhile, because of the red card he received in the Spanish club final in January, Messi has been told he does not deserve to win the Ballon d'Or this year. Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lebouef has linked the six-time Ballon d'Or winner's predicament to that of Zinedine Zidane.
Due to the red cards he collected in those years, Zidane was overlooked in 2000 and 2006, according to Lebouef, and other players were awarded the honor. After scoring 38 goals in 47 games for Barcelona last season, Messi has been considered among the favorites for the prestigious trophy this year. Ronaldinho claims that he does not make comparisons between footballers Legit. Former Brazilian star Ronaldinho, who was present at the Parc des Princes to witness PSG's 3-2 Champions League victory over RB Leipzig, described Neymar and Lionel Messi as excellent friends.
