Cristiano Ronaldo: “I have no relationship with Lionel Messi”


Probably the most soccer star of our time,
Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo has
described his rivalry with Lionel Messi as a
positive rivalry and sees no big deal been
compared to the Barcelona forward as they
both have no relationship outside football.
Speaking with World Soccer recently, when
asked for his thoughts on the rivalry with the
Argentine forward, the three times World best
said: ‘This is part of my life, It is normal that
people compare us. I am used to it. It
happened to me at Manchester United and I
know how to manage it.’ ‘We are football
colleagues. Outside of football I have no
relationship with Messi, but not with other
players either. It is a positive rivalry’
The Portuguese player left Manchester United
in 2009 to Real Madrid for a World record fee
of £80million.
