Former Chelsea player, Chris Sutton, has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, are now showing signs of aging.
According to him, their respective moves to clubs in the Saudi Pro League and Major League Soccer show they are fading off.
The 38-year-old Ronaldo has since settled down in Saudi Arabia, having joined Al Nassr late last year.
Messi, 36, completed his move from Paris Saint-Germain to MLS side Inter Miami this summer
The two superstars’ arrivals in their respective leagues have certainly boosted the profiles of the two leagues.
He also added that the players are past their primes, so they have chosen a lower level of competition to keep playing
“He’s (Messi) washed up for him, isn’t he? He’s still good, but, you know, he’s washed up.
“Just as Ronaldo is washed up going to the Saudi Pro League. They’re not the players which they once were, because they wouldn’t go there.”
