Did Ronaldo feel inferior to Messi who lifted the World Cup trophy?
When Brazilian football emperor Ronaldo (46) publicly congratulated Lionel Messi (35, Paris Saint-Germain) on winning the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo (37) unilaterally unfollowed Ronaldo (severing friends on social media).
On the 19th, Ronaldo posted a picture of Messi lifting the 2022 Qatar World Cup trophy on his Instagram and said, "This man will perform at his best no matter what rival he meets. My friend Diego Maradona will be partying in heaven. . Congratulations Messi!”
Did Ronaldo get hurt by this?
Since then, there has been a change in the number of followers on Ronaldo's Instagram.
This is a decrease of 1 friend from 521 to 520, because I stopped being friends with Ronaldo.
In addition, Ronaldo unilaterally cut off his Instagram friends with fellow teammate Jessie Lingard (30, Nottingham), who played together as a teammate during the past season at Manchester United.
It is presumed that it is because of what Lingard recently wrote on his Instagram, "Messi the best player in history, the GOAT" while posting a picture of Messi's World Cup victory.
GOAT stands for 'Greatest Of All Time' and means 'the best of the time'.
Ronaldo and Lingard don't seem to care about Ronaldo's behavior like this.
Also, they still follow Ronaldo's account.
