Awkward moment when Cristiano Ronaldo ignores fan who tells him Lionel Messi is better

Cristiano Ronaldo was heckled by a young fan who told him that Lionel Messi is a better player. You can see his response to the brutal takedown below:


During Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr’s 3-1 dramatic win over Al-Batin, the 38-year-old failed to pick up a goal contribution for the first time in three appearances on Friday (3 March).

It was Abdulrahman Ghareeb who scored a goal, making it 1-1 in the 93rd minute before Mohammed Al-Fatil and Mohammed Maran scored after the 100th minute to give the Saudi team a win.


The fact Ronaldo couldn’t score a goal during the game, even though he still contributed to the team’s win, didn’t go over very well with fans, especially the cheeky young one in the video above.

The heckler taunted the Portuguese star by declaring ‘Messi is better’ as the former Manchester United star as he walked down the tunnel.

“And this was the easy match,” the footballer appeared to say to his team, undeterred.


The former Real Madrid player appeared to ignore the comment as he walked past the football fan and instead expressed his reaction to the game.

LADbible has contacted Ronaldo's representatives for a comment.

Both footballers are considered the elite and it is an argument that will likely never be settled by fans of either side.

On Saturday night (4 March), recent World Cup winner Messi scored for Paris St Germain (PSG) in their 4-2 winning game over Nantes at the Parc des Princes.

Kylian Mbappe scored in injury time and became the club’s leading goalscorer at PSG.

Now the club will travel to Bayern Munich next week.

Meanwhile, the Argentine star was officially named the Best FIFA Men's Player for 2022 in a fancy ceremony last week.


He beat out his PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe and 2022 Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema to take home the coveted award.

The voting is made up of fans, national team managers and national team captains like Messi, as well as 300 journalists across the world.

Messi scored 16 goals in 27 games across all competitions in the 2022 season, according to ESPN.

And this actually is the second time Messi has taken home the award, with the first being in 2019.


"I want to express my thanks to [coach Lionel] Scaloni and my teammates; without them I would not be here," he said when he received his latest accolade.

"I achieved a dream I had been hoping for so long and finally I achieved it. It's a dream for any player; very few people can achieve that and I was lucky enough to do so."

He added: "It's amazing. It was a tremendous year and it is an honour for me to be here tonight and win this award."
