Ronaldo or Messi, the two best players in the world, have won the “Golden Ball” in the past nine years, and are compared for each season
The Portuguese striker, whose team will face Juventus in the Champions League final on Saturday, said Mesi was one of the players he enjoyed watching him play.
“I like to look at the big players and Messi is one of them,” he said.
“I really enjoy seeing him in the field and all the great players.
“Whenever I’m with him, I have a very good relationship with Messi,” added Ronaldo.
“It is not that I go to his house and eat together. He is not a friend [of mine], but I consider him as a companion in the profession and not as a rival because I do not like comparisons.
“It’s part of football’s work .”
