‘I’m not sure Messi could do it’: Sir Alex Ferguson’s 2015 comments resurface
Speaking back in April 2015, Sir Alex Ferguson said: “People say who is the best player in the world? And plenty of people quite rightly say Lionel Messi — you can’t dispute that opinion,.
“But Cristiano Ronaldo could play for Millwall, Queens Park Rangers, Doncaster Rovers… anyone, and score a hat-trick in a game. I’m not sure Messi could do it.
“Ronaldo’s got two feet, he’s quick, great in the air, he’s brave — Messi is brave, of course. I think Messi is a Barcelona player.”
Messi is yet to score a goal in three games for Paris Saint-Germain while Ronaldo has found the net four times in three games for Manchester United.
