Messi vs Ronaldo: Aguero, Garnacho pick world’s greatest player
Despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s 60th career hat-trick on Saturday, Sergio Aguero, a former Manchester City striker, has insisted that his former national teammate, Lionel Messi, is the greatest of all time.
Aguero reiterated that Messi is the finest football player of all time in response to youngster, Alejandro Garnacho, who had hailed his hero, Cristiano Ronaldo as the greatest footballer ever.
Manchester United youngster, Garnacho had uploaded a picture on Instagram after he received the hat-trick match ball from Ronaldo.
Garnacho was included in Ralf Rangnick’s matchday squad for the first time in his career.
And Cristiano handed him the hat-trick match ball after the Portuguese legend netted three goals to lead the Red Devils to a 3-2 win over Norwich.
The 17-year-old Spanish winger publicly expressed his gratitude towards Ronaldo, with a post on social media captioned “greatest of all time”.
And in response, Aguero, who recently retired from football over heart-related ailment, expressed his disagreement with the youngster.
“[You are saying this] because you still haven’t played with the best, Lionel Messi,” wrote Aguero.
