Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the past few years have endured a rivalry that has seen both players competing against each other to win awards and help their respective clubs on securing some of the major trophies in Europe.
It has recently seemed like the Portuguese attacker of Real Madrid; Cristiano Ronaldo has taken the edge as he was named as the best player of the previous season after his amazing run in the Champions League where he managed to score 17 goals which helped Real Madrid on securing the prestigious European title. In August, the former Manchester United player was awarded with the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award as he was voted as the best performer of the previous campaign out of a shortlist of players that included: Diego Costa, Di Maria, Philipp Lahm, Thomas Mueller, Manuel Neuer, Arjen Robben, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.
There have been a series of rumors claiming that C.Ronaldo and Messi have an unhealthy relationship but C.Ronaldo reacted quickly to those rumors as he told the media that his rivalry with the Argentinean footballer is part of his life but that does not necessary mean that Messi is his enemy outside of the pitch in any way.
Cristiano Ronaldo told reporters: “It’s not at all true that we have a bad relationship. We are colleagues and have a professional relationship. We don’t have a relationship outside of football like I have with some other players. He tries to do his best for his club and national team and I do the same. There is a certain rivalry where we are each doing our utmost for our teams. This rivalry is part of my life. It is only normal that people compare us. The same happens in Formula 1 with Ferrari and Mercedes. I’m used to it. I hope that we can both laugh about all this. Football is a game, it’s something fun and something we both like’’

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will miss the Copa del Rey final against Barcelona on Wednesday night. The forward has been suffering from a few injury problems the last few weeks. He had already missed the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund. After missing the match against Almeria during the weekend, it was expected that Ronaldo returned to the starting line-up against Barcelona.
After losing the El Clasico 4-3 earlier in the season, this is a great opportunity for Real Madrid to put more pressure on Barcelona, who come into the match on the back of two consecutive defeats. The Catalan club have slipped three points behind Real Madrid in the table and Carlo Ancelotti’s men could inflict yet another defeat that could end their season. Barcelona can be left with only two titles this season – the Copa del Rey and the league title. However, their defence of the league title is not in a good shape after the 1-0 defeat against Granada.
Ronaldo, who is the club’s top scorer and also the current holder of the FIFA Ballon d’Or award, will not be participating in the match according to club manager Ancelotti, who will be now relying upon the likes of Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale for the goals.
“Cristiano is not available because we do not want to take risks with him. The tests conducted on Cristiano Ronaldo have detected a muscular injury to his left hamstring. This is pending developments. Cristiano did not rest because there was no need. There was no situation we saw that suggested he was tired and if he had been tired he would not have played. He has a problem that many players have at this stage of the season,” said Ancelotti.
