Ronaldo: If you like me, you don't have to hate Messi! We both changed football history
Cristiano Ronaldo in a recent interview has spoken about the enmity between his fans and those of Lionel Messi. The Portuguese said that both have changed the history of football and there is nothing but respect between them.
"I don't see it as a rivalry. If you like Cristiano, you don't have to hate Messi and vice versa. We shared the same stage for 15 years. We changed football history. I'm not saying we're friends, but there's mutual respect. The legacy lives on, the "rivalry" does not. People enjoyed it, it was very good," said CR7, referring to Messi.
