Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi's Friendly Rivalry Was Summed Up At Champions League Draw

Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi's Friendly Rivalry Was Summed Up At Champions League Draw

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been bringing the best out of one another for the best part of 10 years now but their rivalry is a healthy one.

And one moment that summed up their relationship was in August 2019 when the two titans of world football were sat together at the Champions League draw in Monaco alongside Virgil Van Dijk - the winner of the UEFA Men's Best Player award that evening.

"I don't know if it has ever happened before in football - the same two guys in the same stage all the time. Of course we have a good relationship - we have not had dinner together yet, but I hope so in the future.

"We have that battle, he pushed me and I pushed him as well. It's great to be a part of the history of football. I am there, and of course, he is as well."

Speaking in Spanish about Ronaldo raising his game, Messi added: "It was nice to have Cristiano in La Liga, especially since he was at Real Madrid."
