Leo has won the award on Monday. Morgan, who recently interviewed Cristiano, has taken to social media to slam the final outcome of the vote. Lineker has hit out at Piers to claim that the ‘fact he interviewed Ronaldo doesn’t make him better’.
Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan was certainly disappointed with Lionel Messi winning the FIFA Best Men’s Player of the Year award for 2019 on Monday. Morgan made a huge interview with Cristiano Ronaldo last week where the Portuguese revealed he ‘deserves more Ballon d’Ors than Messi’. Piers was among the first to take to social media and lament the Juventus star’s 3rd place finish behind Leo and Liverpool’s Van Dijk.
“In 2019.. One footballer won 2 domestic & 1 national titles, & became 1st to 100 wins & 125 goals in Champions League, 1st current player to 700 official goals & 1st to win Premier League, Série A & La Liga. Clue: it wasn’t Lionel Messi who just won FIFA Best Player,” he tweeted.
BBC Match of the Day presenter and former Barcelona striker Gary Lineker, in his turn, has shut Morgan down with a brilliant response.
