Lionel Messi Was Asked If He Would Pass To Cristiano Ronaldo If They Played Together

Lionel Messi Was Asked If He Would Pass To Cristiano Ronaldo If They Played Together

Lionel Messi has brushed aside his fierce rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo by suggesting that he would pass to him if they played on the same side.

The 32-year-old Barcelona captain has had a heated rivalry with Juventus superstar Ronaldo on the field.

When Messi was asked if he would pass to the 35-year-old Portuguese superstar, he admitted that he would eventually do so.

"I guess so, in the end, yes," he told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.

Ronaldo, who turned 35 this month, has been in fine goalscoring form as he has taken his tally to 24 in 29 appearances this season.

And the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star has scored in 11 straight league matches for Juventus this season.

Messi, who has revealed his favourites to win the Champions League, has failed to score in his last four matches.

But the Argentine superstar has registered six assists in his last four matches, with three of those coming against Real Betis in Barca's 3-2 win.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner said: "It's normal that he continues to score, he is a predatory striker, he loves to score, any day he plays he will score.

"He has many good attributes as a forward and at the minimum he converts."

Despite his competitive rivalry with Messi, Ronaldo has brushed aside the idea that the two superstars share any bad blood.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner praised their competitive rivalry and admitted that he would love to have dinner with Messi someday.

Ronaldo said ahead of the Champions League draw last August: "We have shared the stage 15 years. I don't know if that's happened before -- the same two guys on the same stage all the time.

"Of course, we have a good relationship. We haven't had dinner together yet, but I hope in the future.

"We had that battle in Spain. I pushed him and he pushed me as well. So it's good to be part of the history of football."
