The Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo debate has been going on for more than two decades. Messi and Ronaldo are seen as the two greatest footballers of all time, and this is no exaggeration. Their competitive nature during their time at FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively, has led this debate to grow, but even at the end of their careers, the debate continues. Many Portuguese would pick Ronaldo to support their countrymen, while many Argentinians would support their countryman Messi. Football fans were surprised to see a Portuguese football account posting a picture of Lionel Messi and considering him the greatest of all time instead of their countryman Cristiano Ronaldo.

Although Messi doesn't play for PSG and in Ligue 1 anymore, the league posted an image on X of Lionel Messi playing against Marseille last season. This is in anticipation of the game tomorrow between Marseille and PSG. The heated rivalry between the two clubs makes this game a must-watch in Ligue 1, and the account posted images of past Le Classique matches. Many football fans were surprised to see the Portuguese Ligue 1 X account post an image of Messi and place a "GOAT" emoji to consider him the greatest footballer of all time.

Many may not think it's a big deal because Messi has played in Ligue 1 and not Ronaldo, but it is still odd to see a Portuguese run account calling Messi instead of Ronaldo the goat of football. What is also odd is that other Ligue 1 accounts, like the English version and the French version, did not post this exact image with the same caption. It seems to appear it was only the Portuguese account to call Messi the "GOAT" of football.
