They have been the best players in the world the last ten years, most of those they have been facing each other in La Liga, there were times when things between them were said to be ‘cold’, if not worse, but according to Cristiano Ronaldo, he never had a single little thing against Lionel Messi.
Whenever I’m with him, I have a very good relationship with Messi. It’s not that I go to his house and eat together. He is not a friend, but I consider him a companion by profession and not a rival because I don’t like it, I don’t like comparisons
the Portuguese super star told Fox Sports Argentina.
True to his words, he avoided comparing himself to Messi, but he did admit to enjoying watching him play.
I like to see all good players and Messi is one of them. He is a player. I really enjoy seeing him on the pitch and all the great players
the Real Madrid star said, picking his words carefully so as not to sound… overly complimenting.
After five long years, Ronaldo finally celebrated winning the Spanish championship again, leaving Messi’s Barcelona three points behind, and is about to face Juventus in the Champions League final, hoping to finish the season lifting yet another major trophy.
