There’s no question that Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney is having the season of his career. However anyone who tries to claim that he’s in better form than Barcelona’s Lionel Messi needs to put down the pipe and step back from Max Wright. The boy is the truth.
Messi scored a hat trick against Real Zaragoza on Sunday to put himself at eight goals in the past three games. That’s right. He scored three against Valencia last weekend and another two mid-week. He may be scoring too much. He actually gave a teammate a penalty kick as if it was spare change.
Two hat tricks in one week is good enough but he had to go and pull this for his second goal yesterday.
Oh no, he didn’t. Yes he did. That’s some straight Maradona right there minus the Colombian marching powder.
