The hidden message of Cristiano Ronaldo to Lionel Messi
The Portuguese striker used a subtlety to continue the debate about who is the best footballer
Cristiano Ronaldo , after his departure from Real Madrid and official presentation at Juventus, is in China , where he is touring Nike , one of its main sponsors.
The Portuguese striker unleashed a real madness among his fans, who are crowded in every presentation he makes. Within the agreement, CR7 had to upload several photographs promoting the different products of the American brand; but a post on his Instagram account caught the attention.
“Looking at some of my shoes,” the footballer wrote in his account; but a detail inside the photo was considered as a hidden message for Lionel Messi , his “archrival” -always speaking within football terms-.
In the image you can see a shirt that says GOAT . Although this word means “goat” in English, it is also the acronym of Greatest of all time ( The best of all time ). This “title” was received by Lionel Messi shortly before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, when he appeared next to a goat on the cover of Paper magazine.
This would not be the first time that Cristiano sends a hidden message to Messi regarding this issue. During the World Cup, the Portuguese celebrated a goal by touching the pear as if he had a goat’s beard.
The photo did not go unnoticed among the fans of each of the players.
