See what Cristiano Ronaldo said about his Rivalry with Messi
“I never saw Messi as a rival” -After his brace, Cristiano Ronaldo talked at Camp Nou, and was most elegant. The Portuguese told him that he had never seen Messi as a rival and that this outcome was virtually impossible for Juventus to achieve.
Cristiano Ronaldo shone at the Camp Nou with a brace from the penalty spot and was key for Juventus to win the group. The Portuguese spoke after the match against Barcelona.
“I think it can be a confidence boost because we needed such a victory. Barcelona will always be Barcelona even if they are going through a bad situation. We thought it was impossible to come and do this here”, the forward said on ‘Movistar+’.
The Portuguese was asked about the dubious penalty in the collision with Araujo. A passage of play that has been controversial because many believe that the punishment was excessive.
“I don’t know if it was a penalty because I didn’t see the TV. These are decisions and I don’t want to go there because the referee’s job is always very complicated. When you score three goals in the Camp Nou I think there is no doubt that we deserved to be first”, Ronaldo continued.
As expected, the Juventus man spoke about his relationship with Leo Messi on and off the pitch: “I have always had a cordial relationship with Messi. I never saw Messi as a rival because we both try to do our best for our teams. If you ask him, I’m sure he’ll tell you the same thing. I see him as always and Barcelona are having a hard time, but all teams have a bad run and they are an excellent team”.
To Conclude, Ronaldo made clear that he wants to continue at the maximum level and who doesn’t see himself retiring yet. “I want to go on and be ready for the next battles,” he concluded.
