Messi unfollows Garnacho for calling Ronaldo GOAT: Though it seemed like the great 15-year Messi vs Ronaldo rivalry ended when both greats moved out of Europe, Ronaldo is still staying at Messi’s head rent-free. And the latest proof is out when Messi unfollowed his fellow Argentine youngster Alejandro Garnacho Garnacho for calling Cristiano Ronaldo The Goat.
Messi unfollows Garnacho for calling Ronaldo GOAT
Garnacho is one of the few players who has gotten a chance to play with both of the all-time greats. He played with Ronaldo at Manchester United, while he plays for Argentina alongside Messi.
Garnacho had come forward to call Ronaldo the ‘greatest of all time’ on many occasions. This didn’t go well with Lionel Messi. Instead of letting it go as a personal preference, the Inter Miami star took out his rage by unfollowing Garnacho on Instagram.
The story came out when Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand revealed it on his YouTube video. Rio said that Garnacho had revealed to him that Messi didn’t take his GOAT comments well and unfollowed him on Instagram in April 2022.
“You know what I like about him? He doesn’t give a f*ck. Garnacho told me that Messi unfollowed him just because he makes no secret of preferring Ronaldo. He comes out, don’t care, ‘I’m a Ronaldo man’. Who’s the GOAT? Ronaldo. (Even) when he’s in the Argentina squad.”Rio Ferdinand
The other day, Messi was spotted getting angry at a kid having a Cristiano Ronaldo jersey in Miami.
