Angel Di Maria has sent a meaningful message to Manchester United winger, Alejandro Garnacho while subtly sharing insights into the ongoing Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi debate and indicating his potential alignment, Newspremises reports.
Having shared the field with both Ronaldo and Messi, Di Maria advises Garnacho to draw valuable lessons from these football icons.
Garnacho boldly declares his admiration for the Portuguese superstar, frequently emulating CR7’s iconic ‘Siuu’ celebration and proudly sporting his branded underwear.
This allegiance raises eyebrows, considering Garnacho’s roots in Argentina, the same country as Ronaldo’s eternal rival, Lionel Messi.
Despite his Argentine heritage, the 18-year-old prodigy openly declares himself a devoted Cristiano Ronaldo fan.
While Garnacho’s steadfast support for the Al-Nassr captain occasionally attracts criticism from Messi enthusiasts, Angel Di Maria, Garnacho’s compatriot and former teammate of CR7 at Real Madrid, provides guidance to the young talent.
Di Maria suggests that while Alejandro can embrace Ronaldo’s celebrations, he should also glean valuable football lessons from Messi.
“If I was Garnacho, the only thing I wouldn’t do is celebrate like Cristiano Ronaldo. I would do what Messi does,” he advised as quoted by the The Nassr Zone.
