Lionel Messi has been asked if he would pass to his fierce rival Cristiano Ronaldo and the Barcelona captain suggested that he would pass to him if they played on the same side.
The 32-year-old Barcelona captain has had a heated rivalry with the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star on the field.
When Messi was asked if he would pass to the 35-year-old Portuguese superstar, he admitted that he would eventually do so.
“I guess so, in the end, yes,” he told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.
Ronaldo, who turned 35 in February, has been in fine goalscoring form as he has taken his tally to 25 in 32 appearances this season.
But the Argentine superstar has praised Ronaldo on his recent performances for Juventus and called him a “predatory striker.”
Messi said: “It’s normal that he continues to score, he is a predatory striker, he loves to score, any day he plays he will score.
“He has many good attributes as a forward and at the minimum, he converts.”
Despite his competitive rivalry with Messi, Ronaldo has brushed aside the idea that the two superstars share any bad blood.
