Barcelona Star, Lionel Andres Messi has revealed he misses who many football fans believes to be his arch rival, Cristiano Ronaldo playing in the spanish league.
The fierce rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in Spain ended after the Portuguese left Real Madrid for Juventus last summer in a staggering £100million deal.
Now, Messi has admitted he wishes Ronaldo was still in La Liga.
In his words;
‘I miss Cristiano, Although it was a bit difficult to see him win trophies, he gave La Liga prestige’.
‘Juventus are a great candidate to win the Champions League since the arrival of Cristiano, and the match against Atleti must have given them a lot of confidence.’
The five times Ballon D’Or winner also went on to name a list of players who he feels are at the top of their game at the moment. He said;
‘I don’t want to forget anyone, but I think that Neymar, [Kylian] Mbappe, [Eden] Hazard, Luis Suarez and [Sergio] Aguero are the best.’
‘I didn’t mention Cristiano because I put him aside from the list with me.’
