The supporters feel the former Chelsea player has no right to discredit the ex-Real Madrid forward because he did not reach such levels
Fans have slammed former Nigeria midfielder John Obi Mikel for ‘disrespecting’ Cristiano Ronaldo after he criticised the Portugal captain’s ego.
Mikel weighed in on the Ronaldo and Lionel Messi debate, choosing the Argentina legend as his favourite due to his ‘humility,’ while pointing to Ronaldo’s recent interview where he lashed out at Manchester United as an example of why he dislikes him.
However, many supporters feel Mikel is not fit to speak about Ronaldo.
Ronaldo bigger than you in Nigeria
Oh! I just remembered the guy called John Obi Mikel. That guy that spent most of his football career on the bench. Please someone should tell him that Ronaldo has a greater number of fans in his birth country Nigeria than him. -Saraki Abdulrahman Nooh
Just sour grapes
We know because he [Ronaldo] denied you a Champions League trophy during Man United vs Chelsea final and we have not forgotten just like you have not. Hate him, like him, you can’t stop his shine.
Mikel failed to reach such levels
His opinion doesn’t matter. He, Michael [Mikel] was supposed to be up there with them but he fell off. He should rest. -Elshuaib Muhammad
- Mikel not fit to select the GOATWho is the Obi Mikel? We all know he has never been a great player so he can’t choose who is great between them [Ronaldo and Messi]. -Ngomsi Cyriaque Benjamin
