'Ronaldo Wouldn't Have Done What Messi Did!'

'Cristiano Ronaldo Wouldn't Have Done What Lionel Messi Did!'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Mar 29, 2018 01:56 PM @KurtLaduma

Lionel Messi was criticised for leaving his box seat early when Argentina lost to Spain on Tuesday, and he also did something else that Cristiano Ronaldo would never have done, according to an Albiceleste legend.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see Messi leaving his box seat before the end of Argentina's loss to Spain.

The 30-year-old was absent for both of Argentina's international friendlies over the past week as he has reportedly been carrying a hamstring injury.

On Tuesday, Messi watched on from a box seat alongside countryman Manuel Lanzini as their team got thrashed 6-1 by Spain, with the Barca man eventually seen leaving his seat after Isco scored his hat-trick, and La Furia Roja's final, goal.

Former Albiceleste goalkeeper Hugo Gatti was disappointed by Messi's absence, insisting the star's biggest rival Ronaldo would have played even he was carrying a knock.

"Messi had to have played," he told El Chiringutio TV.

"People wanted to see you.

"Cristiano would have done it."

Messi Slammed For Leaving Argentina Vs Spain Early

Messi is reportedly a doubt for Barca's clash away at Sevilla this weekend, although he could be available for the first leg of the club's UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Roma next week.

Do you think Messi should've played against Spain? Let us know in the comments section below.

Messi alone took them to Russia and we never heard a word from anyone by the name Gutti/Gucci but now that Messi did not play in a useless game they're quick to criticize. They're always looking for a fault even where there's none. Aii this Argentines! may Messi must ask FIFA to cancel his hat-trick and his stellar performance from the last qualifiers game so they can kiss Russia goodbye. Sis!!

How would it have helped the national team had he played and suffer a serious injury? Some people are just jealousy and ungrateful

Ronaldo fans with their bad grammar busy writing bile about the king. Anyway no wonder the king fails to perform for Argentina it's because of these selfish ungrateful nitwits who don't appreciate him. The king owes no world cup to nobody. ##GodSaveTheKing

What this gentleman says, I think is that the said injury was not as crc. Messi was saved for Barca games. He'll play a part against Sevilla..
