My longtime rivalry with Messi made a better player -Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo admitted on Wednesday his long – time rivalry with Lionel Messi has made him “ a better player ” and that he enjoys a “ healthy” rivalry with the Argentine great .

However , Portuguese star Ronaldo , whose influence at Real Madrid mirrored that of Messi at Barcelona before he left for Juventus , admitted that the pair have never socialised together.

“ I really admire the career he has had and from his side, he has already talked of the disappointment when I left Spain because it was a rivalry that he appreciated , ” Ronaldo told TVI in Portugal .

“ It’ s a good rivalry but it ’ s not unique — Michael Jordan had rivalries in basketball , there were Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost in Formula 1 .

The thing they all had in common is that they were healthy rivalries . ”

Ronaldo and Messi have won the coveted Ballon d’ Or five times each , a factor that helps each player flourish .

“ I have no doubt that Messi has made me a better player and vice- versa .

When I am winning trophies it must sting him and it ’ s the same for me when he wins, ” he said .

“ I have an excellent professional relationship because we have been sharing the same moments for 15 years.

He added : “ We’ ve never had dinner together but I don’ t see why we can ’ t in the future . I don’ t see a problem with that. ”
