‘How typical Ronaldo fans think – delusional!’: Fans SLAM Piers Morgan after he suggests the France team were ‘deliberately poisoned’ ahead of the World Cup final… before coming to life late on
Fans have ripped into Piers Morgan for suggesting France’s team were ‘deliberately poisoned’ ahead of the World Cup final.
After France went 2-0 down, Morgan tweeted: ‘It wasn’t a virus, the French team clearly got deliberately poisoned’, in response to the poor performance from Didier Deschamps’ side.
Fans on social media have laid into the 57-year-old, branding him ’embarrassing’ and linking his apparent desire for Lionel Messi not to win the World Cup to his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Morgan famously has a strong relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, one of Messi’s rivals
Morgan famously carried out Ronaldo’s recent reveal-all interview targeting Manchester United, and he has repeatedly backed the Portugal forward as the best player in the world over Messi.
Messi could onto win his first World Cup in his final game at the tournament, a feat which Ronaldo, who will also surely not play at another finals, never achieved.
He scored the opening goal in the game from the penalty spot and played a vital role in the second, teeing up Alexis Mac Allister, who fed Angel di Maria to score.
Kylian Mbappe however hit a late double to bring things back to level terms as the end of normal time approached.
