WHAT OCCURED?

Alejandro Garnacho’s stunning goal against Everton on Sunday made headlines throughout the world. However, after Ferdinand made an unusual assertion in the aftermath of the game, Garnacho’s brother, Roberto, rallied to his defense. Messi, according to the former England great, unfollowed Garnacho on Instagram because of his affection for Cristiano Ronaldo. However, the player’s brother insisted that Messi was never a follower in the first place.

QUOTE FROM ROBERTO GARNACHO

“Fake, Messi never followed him,” Roberto Garnacho said on X (previously Twitter), referring to a video of Ferdinand. “Stop making stuff up just to create hate, garna [Alejandro Garnacho] loves and admires both of them and you all Trying to creating a rivalry.”

A few hours later, Ferdinand responded to the message, writing, “Was sarcasm, bro.”

When it comes to answering the age-old Messi vs. Ronaldo debate, Argentine players are usually unambiguous. Garnacho, on the other hand, is a one-of-a-kind case, having only recently come into Argentina’s squad and having played only 16 minutes with Messi. After Ronaldo’s ultimately unsuccessful return to Old Trafford, the teenage winger trained and played with him on a number of times. Given the circumstances, the 19-year-old rightfully admires both of the modern era’s great players.
