Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

It’s difficult to argue with an icon like this. One of football’s former greats, Michel Platini, has claimed that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo both made wrong career moves.

The two superstars left their respective clubs last season with Messi leaving FC Barcelona and Ronaldo moving on from Juventus to Manchester United.

With Messi aged 34 and Ronaldo 37-years-old, Platini believes the duo should have gone to places like the United States of America or China.

“I respect Ronaldo and Messi, but I retired at 32,” Platini said, according to the Daily Mirror.

“I could have joined Barcelona or Marseille, but I wanted to be identified with the club that I had made history with.

“Ronaldo was Real Madrid and Messi was Barcelona. If I were them, I would have moved to the USA or China, not to another big club,” the former Balon ‘dOr winner and France legend concluded.
