"The Best vs Lucky": Sergio Aguero's Controversial Statement on Ronaldo's Goal

The retired Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has sparked a lot of controversy on social media with his recent statement on a goal scored by Cristiano Ronaldo during his time at Manchester United. The Argentine, who retired in December 2021 due to heart problems, made the comments while appearing as a guest on a show hosted by Spanish influencer Ibai Llanos on Twitch.

The Goal in Question

The goal in question is the Portuguese's famous free-kick from 30 meters away during a Premier League game against Portsmouth in 2008. The goal has been widely considered as one of Ronaldo's best, and has been the subject of many accolades and praises over the years.

"He was lucky with this shot," Aguero said of the goal, which has caused a "commotion" on social media.

Aguero's Friendship with Messi

Aguero is known to be one of Lionel Messi's closest friends in football, with the possible exceptions of Luis Suarez and Cesc Fabregas.

The retired striker has made no secret of his admiration for his friend, and has previously stated that he believes Messi is the greatest footballer of all time and a better player than Ronaldo.

Aguero's Previous Statements on Messi and Ronaldo

After Messi led Argentina to World Cup glory in December 2022, Aguero was quoted by the Manchester Evening News as saying: "I don't think there is any doubt.

For me, there were no doubts before the World Cup and much less now. Cristiano has had an extraordinary career and is a very complete athlete. But Leo clearly has been and is the best." While many football fans around the world might agree with Aguero's assessment of the age-old Ronaldo vs Messi debate, it could certainly be argued that his nonplussed reaction to some of Ronaldo's greatest ever goals was a little unfair.

After all, Aguero himself was a brilliant goalscorer in his own right and would have loved to have scored some of the goals on Ronaldo's compilation video.
