“Messi didn’t care about the Mejor War.”

So says Lionel Messi’s close friend, Gerard Pique. Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have dominated world soccer for the past decade. Their scoring rivalry has been one of the greatest in history. They have battled for trophies in the Spanish Primera Liga and the European Champions League, and Messi has been the Primera Liga’s top scorer eight times (2009-2010, 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020, 2020-2021) and Ronaldo three times (2010-2011, 2013-2014, 2014-2015).

Not surprisingly, the Ballon d’Or, which is awarded to the best player in the world, is also won more often than not. 토토사이트 Messi has won it eight times and Ronaldo has won it five times. Recently, the tide has turned in favor of Messi, especially after the World Cup, but there are still many who believe Ronaldo is the best.

Ronaldo has made a number of Messi-centric comments. “The Saudi league is better than Major League Soccer (MLS),” he recently said. The MLS is the league Messi plays in. Of course, Ronaldo is still conscious of Messi, saying “Me and Messi are now going our separate ways, our legacy of changing soccer will live on, but the rivalry is over.” But what about Messi?

In the past, Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez said in a documentary: “They probably wouldn’t admit it, but I’m sure they looked at each other. Ronaldo had Messi and Messi had Ronaldo.” Pique disagreed: “Messi is not like that,” he recently told TalkSPORT, “Despite the media attention, he was focused on the team. Individual awards were not a concern for him.”
