Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has just made a controversial argument about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Cristiano Ronaldo is often praised for the success of many clubs in different tournaments. Meanwhile, many people think that Lionel Messi will not be successful if he leaves Barca.
Despite this, former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher believes Messi does not need to prove his greatness by finding success in another team like Ronaldo.
“It was a stupid thought. Messi is the top player of the team. He is the best player in the Barca shirt and also the best player in Europe.
“He had the best performances against the best pairs in the biggest tournaments, which is what Messi does regularly. Because of that, I don’t really care about other ideas about him. It is good that Ronaldo has success in many different teams, but that is not the reason to criticize Messi.
“I think, I know why Ronaldo moved to join another pair. I think he knows he is always underestimated than Messi. Therefore, I think Ronaldo is quite smart when he decides to change clubs. I can say that I have won and is the top scorer in every national championship that I have ever attended”.
“I also think that Ronaldo can do the opposite of Messi’s decision and try to make a difference for himself. But listen to me, no one says that Franco Baresi or Paolo Maldini are bad defenders because they spent their entire career at AC Milan. So why is Messi not being treated like that? I mean why is he forced to leave Barca ”.
Jamie Carragher personally agrees with Messi’s decision because the former English player also spent his career in Liverpool.
