Ronaldo and Messi have had incredible battles over the years but still both superstars have maintained immense respect for each other. Ronaldo while talking at the UEFA Awards in 2019 said:

“We have shared the stage for 15 years. ‘I don’t know if that has ever happened in football, the same two guys on the stage at the same time, so it’s not easy. Of course we have a good relationship, we have not had dinner together yet but I hope in the future.”

The whole football World would be eager to see a Messi and Ronaldo meet up off the pitch as they are two of the most loved and most followed superstars in the history of football.
