Messi: 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.”

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