Fans slam Piers Morgan for claiming France were ‘deliberately poisoned’ ahead of World Cup final
‘How typical Ronaldo fans think – delusions!’: Fans slam Piers Morgan after he suggests the France team was ‘deliberately poisoned’ ahead of the World Cup final… before coming to life late
Fans have mocked Piers Morgan for claiming France’s side were “deliberately poisoned” ahead of the World Cup final.
Following France’s 2-0 defeat, Morgan tweeted: “It wasn’t a virus, the French team was clearly poisoned on purpose” in response to Didier Deschamps’ poor performance.
Fans on social media have branded the 57-year-old an “embarrassing” and linked his apparent desire for Lionel Messi not to win the World Cup to his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Heads are totally going love it,” said one Twitter user, with another adding, “Cry more.”
Another, who criticized Morgan’s views on Messi, said: “You’re a grown man?”
Several other users posted photos of Cristiano Ronaldo crying and further mocked Morgan, as another said: “As typical Ronaldo fans think, delusional.”
France’s team had been plagued by a virus ahead of the game, a report Morgan dismissed
Morgan is known to have a close relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, one of Messi’s rivals
Morgan famously conducted Ronaldo’s latest revealing interview with Manchester United and he has repeatedly endorsed the Portuguese striker as the best player in the world over Messi.
Messi could win his first World Cup in his last game of the tournament, a feat Ronaldo, who is also unlikely to play in another finals, never managed to achieve.
He scored the first goal of the game from the penalty spot and played an important role in the second goal, scoring Alexis Mac Allister who fed Angel di Maria to the goal.
However, Kylian Mbappe hit a late double to level things up as the end of regular time neared.
