Lionel Messi is a 10 and Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘three points lower’ : Sergio Aguero
Lionel Messi is a “10” and Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘three points lower’, as indicated by Manchester City and Argentina striker Sergio Aguero.
The 27-year-old, who got another hamstring injury in his side’s World Cup 2018 qualifier with Ecuador, clowned that his nternationall fellow team member was significantly better than Ronaldo in remarks which are certain to reignite the age-old ‘who is better?’ contention.
Identifying with TyC Sports with a wry grin, Aguero noted: ‘Not Cristiano nor anybody else is close to Leo: he’s a 10 and Cristiano is three points lower,’‘ maybe referencing the Real Madrid star’s No 7 shirt number.
‘Nobody is going to reach Messi’s level, but everybody has their opinion. I don’t say this because he’s my friend, I see him and if you are alongside him he impresses you with how quickly he takes the ball.
‘We all know what Leo is at the top level,’ Aguero added. ‘There’s nobody equal to him. He is the 10 and he said to me… I have to wear it and shut up! Wearing Messi’s No.10 shirt is something special.’
Lamentably, wearing harmed Messi’s No 10 finished seriously for Aguero, as he himself got a injury which is liable to preclude him of activity for various weeks.
Manchester City face neighborhood opponents United in an imperative conflict in a little more than two weeks’ chance, yet the star striker is unrealistic to be sufficiently fit to take his place.
Aguero scored an amazing five goals in his last Premier League trip, putting Newcastle to the sword to assist City with keeping up their position at the highest point of the table.
