For over 10 years now, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo maintain their rivalry in the field. But what about their relationship outside? Lionel Messi answers.
13 Championships, 10 Golden Balls, 8 Champions Leagues, 8 Golden Shoes.
This is the cumulative record of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Their rivalry is impressive both in terms of titles won by each, but also by the duration of it.
It’s been more than 10 years since they won all the trophies and no player has managed to climb to their level. But off the field, what relationship do the two men have? Lionel Messi replied.
« Everything is fine, but our lives do not cross very often »
In an interview with World Soccer, the Argentine said, « I do not know. Friendship is something that is built with time together. We do not have any relationship because we only see each other at prize giving, which is the only time we talk to each other. Everything is fine, but our lives do not cross very often”.
