Cristiano Ronaldo Once Revealed The One Lionel Messi Quality He Wish That He Had

Cristiano Ronaldo once hilariously admitted that he would love to have fierce rival Lionel Messi's incredible left foot.

Juventus superstar Ronaldo, 35, and Barcelona captain Messi, 33, have shared a heated rivalry on the pitch and are widely considered as two of the best players of all time.

But there's no denying that both world-class stars recognise the brilliant skills that each of them possesses.

Speaking ahead of the 2015 Ballon d'Or ceremony, Messi praised Ronaldo for having a lot of qualities "any player would love to have."

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner explained: "Cristiano has a lot of qualities [and] any player would love to have them.

"But I am how I am and he is like he is."

Ronaldo, on the other hand, didn't mince his words when he was asked if there was a particular quality that he would take from Messi.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner responded: "Me? Messi's left foot isn't bad! Maybe the left foot.

"I'm not too bad using my left, but maybe his is slightly better."

Ronaldo and Messi were sat on the stage alongside Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar, who was quick to share his opinion before the Q&A was done.

During the Champions League draw last summer, the Juventus forward admitted that he would love to have dinner with Messi in a memorable exchange.

"I shared this stage with him [Messi] for 15 years," Ronaldo said.

"I don't know if it has ever happened before in football -- the same two guys on 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."
