We all know a thing or two about Piers Morgan and his sensational takes but it went sideways with his long term friend, former England hot shot Gary Lineker as both went head to head over a debate on former United winger David Beckham.
Piers Morgan ranted about his views that Beckham will go down as one of the most overrated footballers ever while Spurs Legend Lineker thought otherwise, you’d have to read an excerpts of their banter by yourself.
Piers Morgan: Great to watch a Beckham who can actually play football…. #SuperBowl
Gary Lineker: You might dislike him, for whatever reason, but David Beckham was a great footballer. One of our finest.
Piers Morgan: You might want to suck up to him, for whatever reason, but Beckham was the most overrated player in history. Wouldn't have got onto the Arsenal Invincibles bench.
Gary Lineker: 6 Premier Leagues, 2 FA Cups, 1 Champions League, 1 La Liga, 1 Ligue 1. Balón d’Or runner up. 115 caps for England, 59 as captain. One of the best crossers of the ball the game has ever seen. Yeah, overrated.
Piers Morgan: Take away the crossing & free-kicks, he was a fame-hungry snail with dumb haircuts who only won that much because of the truly great players around him.
Gary Lineker: Take away the crossing and free kicks? That’s the equivalent of saying about Ronaldo “Take away the goals”.
Piers Morgan: Well no, because Ronaldo’s the greatest player in history and can do everything better than Beckham. But it would be like taking away your goal-hanging & tap-ins… you’d be lucky to make Leicester’s all-time XI without those…
Gary Lineker: Absolutely agree, without the tap-ins and goal-hanging, I wouldn’t have scored hundreds of goals and won golden boots, I’d be like you, completely and utterly useless.
