Ronaldo: Messi is a companion, not a rival

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo praised Lionel Messi and said he enjoyed watching the Barcelona forward.

Either Ronaldo or Messi, the world’s two best players, have won the Ballon d’Or the past nine years, and are compared every season.

The Portuguese forward, whose team face Juventus in the Champions League final on Saturday, said Messi was among those he enjoyed seeing play.

“I like to see all good players and Messi is one of them. He is a player,” Ronaldo told Fox Sports Argentina.

“I really enjoy seeing him on the pitch and all the great players. It’s not that I go to his house and eat together. He is not a friend, but I consider him a companion by profession and not a rival because I don’t like it, like comparisons.”
