Sergio Aguero and other Argentina teammates harassed Alejandro Garnacho for calling Cristiano Ronaldo GOAT after his awesome hat-trick against Norwich City.
Garnacho was named in Manchester United’s starting lineup against Norwich, but he was benched as the Red Devils defeated the Canaries 3-2.
Ronaldo’s hat-trick, which featured a tap-in, header, and free-kick, was enough to enable Manchester United to defeat Norwich.
With his spectacular exhibition and gesture toward the young Argentine star, the 37-year-old not only stole the show, but he also stole the spotlight.
After the game, Ronaldo presented Alejandro Garnacho with the match ball for his hat-trick.
And the adolescent praised the Portuguese icon’s act on Instagram, calling him the ‘GOAT’.
“Greatest of all time… @cristiano,” Garnacho wrote on Twitter.
And Sergio Aguero and the other Argentina players reacted as expected, predicting that he would prefer Lionel Messi, his countryman, to Ronaldo.
“Because you haven’t played with the best yet, @leomessi,” Aguero added.
Manchester United will return to action in the middle of the week when they travel to Liverpool.
Even casual football fans are likely to have heard of two of the sport’s biggest stars in recent years. The dispute between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has defined our era. The world has been divided by the two greats of the game, with each side defending its favorite player with its own logic and rationale.
Alejandro Garnacho, a 17-year-old Argentine midfielder for Manchester United, had a career-defining day on Saturday when he was picked as a substitute in the Red Devils’ match against Norwich. Furthermore, he was presented with the match ball by Ronaldo, who scored his 50th club hat-trick in this game, assisting the team to a memorable victory.
He was ecstatic with what had happened, and he took to Instagram to post a photo with the legendary Portuguese. Ronaldo was even dubbed the “Greatest of All Time” by him.
Who is Alejandro Garnacho?
