Cristiano Ronaldo has said, “Lionel Messi is an amazing player. Magic. Top. As a person, we share the stage for the last 16 years. Imagine 16 years. So, I have a great relationship with him. I’m not a friend of him, in terms of what I mean as a friend who was with you in your house or speaking on the phone. No, but it’s like a teammate. He’s a guy that I really respect the way he always speaks about me. Even his wife or my wife, my girlfriend, they always have respect and they’re from Argentina.”

The footballer further said, “My girlfriend is from Argentina. So good. What I am going to say about Messi? A great guy who does great things for football. Probably the best player I’ve ever seen [excluding myself]. Maybe Zidane. That I play and fight with, yes.”
