Messi and Ronaldo set Monaco on fire during the award ceremony of the UEFA UCL draw and awards. The two rivals were seen making a conversation.
Just before the Presentation of the UEFA Men’s Player award, the host asked Ronaldo Do you and Messi miss each other?
Ronaldo laughs and replies “We shared this stage for 15 years, me and him. I don’t know if it’s ever happened in football, it’s not easy. I miss playing in Spain. He pushed me and I pushed him as well.
“We haven’t had dinner… YET… We have the battle. We push each other forward.”
The Host further asking said, “You said you could retire, can we ask both of you & Messi to retire together?”
Cristiano said, “He is two years younger than me… but I can tell those who hate me that I will try to keep being here.”
The host turning to Messi asked Do you miss Cristiano? Messi replied, “It was nice to have Cristiano in LaLiga, especially since he was at Real Madrid.”
The pair were seen laughing and talking… what a healthy football rivalry
