Cristiano Ronaldo proved he is the greatest player of all time with his stunning hat-trick against Tottenham, according to Piers Morgan.   

Ronaldo has been on the receiving end of criticism this season due to Manchester United‘s tough league campaign, as well as his own personal struggles in front of goal since the start of January.

The 37-year-old though produced a brilliant match-winning performance in an important victory in the fight to finish in the top four.

Arsenal fan Morgan told the Sun: ‘For the past few weeks, Ronaldo has been the subject of derisive sneering from people who should know better that he’s washed up, finished, kaput… that the magic’s gone, the wondrous goal machine broken, he’s too old and too slow to be a proper force anymore.’

He went on to add that Ronaldo ‘shoved those mocking jibes down a few disrespectful throats’ at Old Trafford on Saturday. 

Morgan then commented: ‘But the real point he proved in scoring his 805, 806 and 807 career goals, taking him past Czech legend Josef Bican to become the top goal-scorer in football history, is that Cristiano Ronaldo is now indisputably the greatest player ever.’

While Ronaldo enjoyed arguably his best match of the season, Lionel Messi endured a tough weekend despite Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 victory over Bordeaux.

Messi, along with Neymar, were booed by PSG supporters who are still angry over the nature of their Champions League exit to Real Madrid.

PSG were 2-0 up in the tie only to collapse, with Karim Benzema scoring a 17-minute hat-trick.

Morgan who has often spoke out on social media about his preference for Ronaldo over Messi, has described the PSG star as a ‘flat-trick bully’.

He said: ‘For me, it comes down to this: Messi is a genius, no question, but I’ve long suspected he’s what cricket fans would call a ‘flat-track bully.’

‘For the first 17 years of his career, he only ever played for one club, Barcelona, where he was always surrounded by whole teams of world class players.

‘From the moment he left Spain and was taken out of his heavily protected comfort zone, he’s faded faster than my taste buds after I caught Covid.’

Despite a mixed season, Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions – compared to Messi’s seven in 26.
