Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher doesn’t seem to be happy with Manchester United’s signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Before his Manchester United debut, Carragher had to be shut down by club legend Peter Schmeichel as he claimed that Ronaldo could have a negative impact on the team.
Ronaldo ended up scoring a brace and was a boost to the team and in the dressing room.
In this week’s Monday Night Football on Sky Sports, another debate ensued between Manchester United legend Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher about which one of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi should be considered as the greatest player of all time.
“I looked at his goal breakdown,” Neville said about Ronaldo.
“He can score with his left foot, his wrong foot. He can score with his right foot. He can score from distance. He is probably the best poacher now in world football.
“He can score penalties. And if you stick him in the box and hang it up there he will go and score with a header. He might even score with a free-kick.
“So if you think about who is the greatest player of all time, I do think he is the greatest football player who has ever lived. He is the player who could win me a football match in the most different ways. He is the most complete player.”
Carragher in his normal way disagreed with anything Ronaldo.
He said: “It does not matter how a ball goes in the net. It does not matter if one is a header or a free-kick. Messi has a better goal record than Ronaldo.
“Messi is also a playmaker. Messi can run a game. Ronaldo cannot do that. Again, not a criticism. But there is no way in the world he is the greatest player of all time.
“Two wonderful players. In terms of all the attributes, Ronaldo is a more complete player. He can do things that Messi can’t in terms of his weaker foot and in the air.
“But Messi can take you to a place where you can’t actually believe what you are seeing. What Ronaldo does is what other players can do, Messi can do things you have never seen before.”
