He may not be a friend to hang out with at home but we are pretty much teammates. I admire Messi for the way he always talks about me. Even his wife and my girlfriend, always respect each other and they are both Argentinian. What can I say about Messi? A great man who does great things for football.” Ronaldo also said, “Messi is probably the finest player I’ve ever seen, apart from me. And of course Zidane too.”
