Cristiano Ronaldo has shown to be the greatest of all time, but Lionel Messi, according to Piers Morgan, is a ‘flat-track bully.’

Piers Morgan has heaped more praise on Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting that the Manchester United striker’s stunning hat-trick against Tottenham has proven he is the greatest player of all time.

Remember that Ronaldo has been chastised this season for both Manchester United’s poor play and his own personal troubles in front of goal in a number of games.

On Saturday, though, the 37-year-old delivered a stunning match-winning performance in a crucial victory in the race for a top-four finish.

‘But the important point he established in scoring his 805, 806 and 807 career goals, putting him beyond Czech icon Josef Bican to become the top goal-scorer in football history, is that Cristiano Ronaldo is now clearly the best player in the world,’ Morgan said.

While Cristiano Ronaldo was in fine form last weekend, Lionel Messi had a difficult weekend despite PSG’s 3-0 win over Bordeaux.

PSG fans booed Messi and Neymar, who are still enraged about the manner of their Champions League exit to Real Madrid.

PSG led 2-0 only to lose the match when Karim Benzema scored a hat-trick in the 17th minute.

Morgan, who plainly prefers Cristiano Ronaldo to Lionel Messi, called the PSG star a ‘flat-trick bully.’

‘For me, it comes down to this: Messi is a genius, without a doubt, but I’ve long felt he’s a ‘flat-track bully,’ as cricket fans would describe him.’

‘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.’
