Lionel Messi has admitted he “misses” competing against Cristiano Ronaldo in La Liga.
Messi, a five-times Ballon d’Or winner, has begun 2019 in fine form with his Barcelona side running away with La Liga and through to the Champions League quarter-finals, with Real Madrid struggling having sold Ronaldo to Juventus in the summer.
Ronaldo enjoyed huge success in Madrid, winning three successive Champions League crowns and, speaking on an Argentine radio station on Friday, Messi surprised listeners with a confession about his former rival.
“I miss Cristiano in Spain,” Messi told Radio C5N. “It was lovely having him here, even though it annoyed me seeing him win so many titles. It would be great if he was still here.”
