Because it's the very same school of thought. Call it clutch or whatever you want, it's all the same superficial and cringeworthy nonsense to me. Typical pub talk. The same sort of argument that was made against Klopp before he won the CL and is suddenly nowhere to be heard. Deeming Zidane and Maradona mentally stronger is even more cringeworthy and revisionism at it's best. Messi decided many more games at the highest level than both of them combined.
