“Messi is not Ronaldo,” Petty told Mundo Deportivo. – He would fail at Premier League. I do not think Messi is able to withstand the load in the English Championship. Leo is not physically the same machine as Cristiano and would not succeed in England. He is currently being kept in Spain. Ronaldo is a monster and Messi, 32, is only 1-2 years old at the highest level. ”
Petty made a name for himself as a Monaco player, then played for Arsenal and Chelsea.
