Piers Morgan names four greatest footballers in history after Messi’s display vs Croatia

Piers Morgan has stuck by his contention that Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest footballer of all-time, despite Lionel Messi’s superb performance against Croatia.

Morgan only named Messi as the fourth greatest footballer of all-time.

Messi reached his second World Cup final in outstanding style on Tuesday night as he scored and assisted in Argentina’s 3-0 win over Croatia.

The SunSport columnist began by acknowledging Messi and Argentina for reaching the World Cup final.

Speaking on Twitter, he said: “Congratulations to Argentina & Lionel Messi on reaching the World Cup final. Never doubted them.”

But England legend Gary Lineker, who has always maintained Messi is the best ever, then asked Morgan: “Is there still a debate? Asking for a goat.” To which he replied: “There isn’t. It’s Ronaldo.”

Soccer Saturday presenter Jeff Stelling then pressed further on his take, saying: “So where are we now @piersmorgan in the Ronaldo v Messi debate?”

And Morgan responded by saying Messi doesn’t even break into his top three, ranking Diego Maradona and Brazilian Ronaldo ahead of him too.

He said: “I think Cristiano Ronaldo’s the best ever, Maradona 2nd, Messi 3rd (possibly 4th actually, behind R9 [Brazilian Ronaldo]).”

Last month, Morgan’s bombshell interview with Ronaldo ultimately led to his Manchester United contract being terminated.
