The Olympic gold medal was highly appreciated until Messi won it. When we used to bring up Messi's victory in Beijing, they'd degrade it completely. Same people burst out with joy when Neymar won it in 2016 & hyped it like it's the end of the world. Messi effect.
The FIFA U20 World cup was a good thing, at least a trophy worthy of mentioning, until Messi won it. After that, it was "just a kid's trophy that doesn't count in the career of a senior player" even though their own idol couldn't win the same kid's trophy.
The Copa America was a major trophy until Messi won it. Literally seen people commenting that the Nations League is more credible than the Copa itself. Yet we all remember that he got trolled relentlessly for missing out on it in 2015, 2016 and 2019. Messi effect.
77 goals by Pele was a great record until Messi scored 80 goals. Now the South American countries have all of a sudden become "weak" and "easy to play against" so goals as a Latin American don't matter at all even though their own idol couldn't score against them. Messi effect.
Leo has already passed their idol in terms of Balon D'ors, Golden Boots, assists, goal contributions, goals/game ratio, all which Ronaldo wanted to have the most. He scores over his rival in almost every single parameter. He carried dead teams, their idol got carried.
After his Copa victory, they've been deprived of trolling him on that ground. The solution? Demean the competition itself. The brainless hatred is so real that I firmly believe that if Messi ever wins the World Cup they'll end up saying that winning the Champions League is better
He'll always be the greatest of all time.
