Ronaldo: “I have a healthy rivalry with Messi”

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the two best players of this generation, have a healthy rivalry.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the two best players of this generation. They have won the highest individual football honour 11 times among themselves.

This year again both of them have been shortlisted for the Ballon d’Or. Cristiano Ronaldo gave an interview with France Football. He told the magazine: “My goal is to stay young even as I get older. It’s always nice to be spoken of in a flattering way. It’s nice if they say I’ve been the best, a fantastic player.”

“Today, I hear everything they say about me, but when it’s all over, at the end of my career, I won’t mind because I’ll disconnect from everything. To stay among the best you have to be smart. My 700 goals? An impressive number, I’m proud, few have reached that figure.”


“My favorite goal? You ask me to choose, I would say the goal against Juve: the overhead because it’s a goal that I tried to score for years.”

“What is needed to score so many goals? Talent, in the first place, then work, because talent without work is useless and nothing falls from the sky. Tell me a player of the same age as me who plays for a team at the level of Juventus.
At the age of 19-20, I realized that football was made up of numbers, records, goals and titles.”

mr1 Ronaldo: "I have a healthy rivalry with Messi"

“Messi? A lot of people said that we fed each other, that being together in Spain made us better. That’s certainly true. I felt his presence more in Madrid than in Manchester, so there was a bit of extra pressure. It was a healthy rivalry. We were the symbols of our clubs.”
