Andy Murray has apparently made it clear that he feels Lionel Messi has the upper hand over Cristiano Ronaldo in the GOAT debate. British TV personality Piers Morgan, who conducted the famous interview with Ronaldo after which the soccer star was released from Manchester United, has been claiming of late that Ronaldo has the advantage in the GOAT race over Messi.
After Messi scored an impressive goal in Qatar’s 2-0 World Cup win over Mexico, Murray had a message for Morgan. «Oops. @piersmorgan,» Murray tweeted.
However, Morgan had an answer ready.
Morgan responded: «I can see why you like him, you’re both the second best players in your sport coming from your own country. #maradona #perry.»
I can see why you like him… you’re both the second best players in your sport coming from your own country.
Why did Morgan say this to Murray?
Murray, 35, is a three-time Grand Slam champion and a former world number 1. Fred Perry, the player Morgan referred to as the greatest British player of all time, had eight Grand Slam titles.
In addition, Perry had two titles at Wimbledon. In 2013, Murray captured his first Wimbledon title – that was the first time a British men’s tennis player had won Wimbledon since Perry did so in 1936. When it comes to Morgan tagging Diego Maradona, he meant Messi is no bigger than Argentine soccer. Maradona legend.
Meanwhile, Murray confirmed a couple of days ago that he intends to start the 2023 season at the Adelaide International. “I will start the year in Australia, which I always enjoy a lot. Playing the Adelaide International for the first time is something I’m looking forward to.
The crowds in Australia love their tennis and have always been very supportive. I’ve been working hard in the off-season and the Adelaide International will be great preparation for the Australian Open. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Adelaide and 2023 bring,» Murray said.
