I miss having Cristiano Ronaldo in La Liga – Lionel Messi

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi has disclosed that he misses facing rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the Spanish La Liga as the former Real Madrid forward Ronaldo left the club to join Serie A giants, Juventus, in July.

“I miss Cristiano,” Messi told FM Club 947 in Argentina. “Although it was a bit difficult to see him win trophies, he gave La Liga prestige.

“Juventus are a great candidate to win the Champions League since the arrival of Cristiano, and the match against Atleti must have given them a lot of confidence.”

Ronaldo has continued to save his best for Europe’s elite club competition, with a hat-trick against Atletico Madrid firing Juve into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

But the Barcelona captain feels team-mate Luis Suarez should be considered among the best of the rest.

“I don’t want to forget anyone, but I think that Neymar, [Kylian] Mbappe, [Eden] Hazard, Luis Suarez and [Sergio] Aguero are the best,” Messi added.

“I didn’t mention Cristiano because I put him aside from the list with me.” Messi and Ronaldo are widely considered to be two of the greatest players to have ever played the game.
