Portuguese star, Christian RONALDO, recently stirred mixed reactions online after posting a cryptic message which seems to aim dig at fellow footballer LIONEL MESSI, hours after he won his first international trophy.
Lionel Messi has lost three Copa America finals, including a World Cup final in 2014 and three Copa America finals to Brazil (2007) and Chile (2015 and 2016). Finally had the chance to lift his first senior national team trophy.
Christian Ronaldo tweeted in his home language on his official Instagram account, and the post was translated as “if you have the “have” without the ‘be’ it doesn’t belong to you”.
The message attracted mixed reactions online, with some interpreting it as a dig at his fellow soccer player.
“Lol, shot someone” “you are the best ever” were some of the commend on the post.
The soccer player, who is presently on holiday with his wife and children, accompanied the post with a photo, which has received over 1 million likes and nearly 40k comments.
Geaorgina Rodriguez, the soccer player’s fiancée, was among those who reacted on the photo.
With this win Messi has been touted to win the balloon d’or for the 7th time, ahead of earlier favourite N’golo Kante of Chelsea.
Here are some of the comments:
