Fan-Made Video Shows The Great Sportsmanship Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi Share For One Another

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have had one hell of a fierce rivalry.

While it is easy to think that there is nothing but bad blood between the two five-time Ballon d’Or winners, it would seem that is far from the truth.

A football fan has created a video of the two players (posted below), showing that there is a deep respect for one another.

Incredible, right?

The Juventus star wasn’t afraid to issue Barcelona’s talisman a challenge to leave Spain and come to Italy as he has done.

“I played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal, in the national team, while he is still in Spain. Maybe he needs me more,” he said.

“For me, life is a challenge, I like it and I like to make people happy.

“I would like him to come to Italy one day. Like me, accept the challenge.”

Well, the Argentine magician broke his silence last week and explained why he would not take up his challenge.

“Accepting Ronaldo’s challenge to join Italian football? I don’t need any change,” he said.

“I’m at the best team in the world. My challenges are renewed year after year. I do not need to change teams or leagues to set new goals. I am at home and I do not need to change.”

Should Messi have accepted Ronaldo’s challenge?

Let us know in the comments.
