“I don’t know if it has ever happened before in football – the same two guys in the same stage all the time. Of course, we have a good relationship – we have not had dinner together yet, but I hope so in the future.

“We have that battle, he pushed me and I pushed him as well. It’s great to be a part of the history of football. I am there, and of course, he is as well.”

And Messi has said he does not have any issues with Ronaldo even though they are rivals.

According to him, going on a dinner with the Portugal superstar would avoid them the opportunity to see again.

“Yes, I don’t have any problem with that,” he told Sports, a Spanish news outlet. “I’ve always said that I don’t have any issue with him.”

He admitted that, “We might not be friends because we’ve never shared a dressing room together but I always see him at award shows and there’s no problem.
