‘I am nobody compared to Lionel Messi’ – Al-Hilal forward Michael insists he wasn’t trying to disrespect Inter Miami superstar by copying Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous ‘Siuuu’ celebration in Riyadh Season Cup clash

The Brazilian forward was on target when lining up for his Saudi Pro League employers against MLS opponents in the Riyadh Cup. Michael scored Al-Hilal’s third in a thrilling 4-3 victory, and could not hide his joy when hitting the net.

Michael raced away and broke out Ronaldo’s iconic celebration – with the Portuguese superstar now a domestic rival on the books of Al-Nassr – and many questioned what Messi’s reaction would be to seeing an opponent emulate his eternal rival when gracing the same playing field.

Messi’s next outing could see him come up against Ronaldo, with the Portuguese superstar hoping to shake off an unfortunate injury in time to face Inter Miami in another friendly fixture on Thursday.
