MESSI Interview in Argentina: I miss having CR7 in La Liga

Lionel Messi says he misses facing rival Cristiano Ronaldo as the former Real Madrid forward gave “prestige” to La Liga.

After helping Madrid win a fourth Champions League title in five years, Ronaldo left the club to join Serie A giants Juventus in July.
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.
“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.”
The 5 Best players in the world except me? Right now I’d say Hazard,Neymar,Suarez,Mbappe and Aguero. Ronaldo is with me off the list👊.

Messi and Ronaldo are widely considered to be two of the greatest players to have ever played the game.

Messi: “My 6-year-old asks me why they don’t want me in Argentina”
Messi: “They said I was driving the AFA🇦🇷⚽, that I was driving that ‘club of friends’ formed by Di Maria,Higuain and others. The makes me angry”😡
Messi: “We always had problems with local journalism, new things have been said everyday, but we have allowed them to say anything and let them pass lies. That was a mistake”
Messi: “I surely want to win something with the national team,otherwise I would have stayed at home🏡”
Messi: “But its hard. My son is always on YouTube,and he saw a video and asked me ‘Why are they demolishing you in Argentina?”.
Messi: “Our generation of players have been abused in Argentina. We play for our jersey,and we want to achieve something for the team. I will play in all the competitions and major matches for my team”
Messi: “My relationship with all the players in the team is great. They have to be calm,and they have to play the same way they play at the weekend with their clubs” 
Messi: “I’m fully convinced that we will become strong with some patience”
Messi: “I,myself, would not choose my goal against Getafe as my best one. I would have chosen the one against Madrid in the champions league semifinal,or the header against Man United in the final”
Messi: “It’s true that I don’t talk too much. I play,and that’s what I like”
Messi: “I respect Juventus a lot. It’s a big club and has now become more powerful with Cristiano🇵🇹. We hope to reach the final and don’t care about facing them”
Messi (on the WC Russia) “I thought about locking myself up,mourning 😭 only with my family,I wanted to forget what I had lived,to get away from the team a little, to let time pass and to calm down. The elimination hit me hard,finish the cycle of that way it was painful”
Messi: “I’m playing for myself, my family and all those who enjoy what I do. And those who don’t like me have to tolerate me for a while😂”. 
Messi: “Recently I thought; Spain🇪🇸⚽ 2010 was a great team,they were phenomenal,but they also had luck in the world cup final against the Netherlands, and before,they beat Paraguay on penalties, you often need those lucky moments and we never had them”
Messi: “I’m going to extend my RETIREMENT as much as I can. I love football⚽,and I’ll keep to play as long as I can. I was born for it”.
