When asked recently about Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi responded by saying he was a phenomenal player.
The Barcelona forward played down suggestions that the duo were enemies. Messi said the rivalry was fueled by the press and not by both players.
Messi also said he doesn’t get tired of comparisons drawn against him and Ronaldo. Messi said they are both “armed” by the brilliance of the other.
Arguably two of the greatest football players of all time, the Barcelona man and his La Liga rival have shared the past nine Ballon d’Ors between them.
