Fabian Delph dropped his Man City team-mate in it during a question and answer session, claiming the Argentine favours Ronaldo over compatriot and national treasure, Messi
Surely by now a law must have been passed in Argentina making illegal to claim Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Lionel Messi.
So imagine how Manchester City forward, Sergio Aguero, feels when Fabian Delph jokingly accused him of favouring Ronaldo over his Argentina team-mate.
In a question and answer session posted on City’s official Twitter account, Delph, reading a fan’s question, asks “Who is better: Messi or Ronaldo?”
Watch the video below, with some ‘hilarious answers’
Delph: “You said Ronaldo the other day, didn’t you?”
To which Aguero incredulously replies “who?!” as if to say “surely, you don’t mean me?”
It was a response that sparked a big laugh from Delph and Benjamin Mendy.
Both Messi and Ronaldo enjoyed a strong rivalry when both played in Spain between 2009 and 2018.
That all ended when the Portugal captain left Real Madrid for Juventus in the summer, with Barcelona superstar Messi admitting it benefited both of them.
