Thierry Henry makes stunning claim about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo after Clasico

THIERRY HENRY says the man behind Lionel Messi’s stunning El Clasico showing was Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.


Messi scored twice – his 46th and 47th goals of the season – to down Real Madrid 3-2 at the Bernabeu.

The second came in the 92nd minute as he broke Real’s hearts following Sergio Ramos’ sending off.

The result has thrown the title race open and Henry, his former Barca team-mate, believes the display was inspired by Ronaldo.

Henry said Messi had to respond to what Ronaldo did in the week

He said: “Easy to tell you why it happened, Lionel Messi.

“They came with a plan, they did it ever so well.

“Ivan Rakitic scored an amazing goal but it does help because the man [Messi] wanted to do something today.

“He saw Ronaldo scoring his 100th goal in the Champions League before him.

“He saw that and he had to respond.

“I’ve said it so many times – Ronaldo helped Messi to be better, and Messi helps Ronaldo to be better.

“We saw that again – he had to respond to what Ronaldo did in midweek.”
