No more breaking news that FC Barcelona player & Argentine Lionel Messi won the latest FIFA Best Men’s Player award at the event held yesterday evening, but Piers Morgan thinks the playmaker didn’t deserve the accolade in all merits.
The Argentine international scooped the Best player in Men’s category at the last night’s FIFA awards ceremony, beating Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo and Netherlands international Virgil Van Dijk, but popular football analyst Piers Morgan says Lionel Messi didn’t deserve to win the top award. According to Pierce, a huge supporter of Arsenal FC, he thinks Cristiano Ronaldo has done more to win the coveted prize among the trio nominated.
He pointed out Ronaldo’s performance for both club & country within the year in focus as a major measure of his worthy of the award instead of the Argentine. But Nigerian actress Uche Jombo jumps to the defence of Messing and disagrees with the Englishman. See below their exchange on twitter:
Hmmm.. @Cristiano has triumphed in 3 of the world's toughest leagues, and with his national team.
Until Messi does anything outside of his Barcelona comfort zone, he can't compare. https://t.co/sPFEEldFHG
