"I Wanted Ronaldo To Stay At Real Madrid" - Lionel Messi

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has admitted he always wanted Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Real Madrid, MySportDab reports.

The rivals have set the standard for individual performances over the course of the last decade, setting rafts of scoring records and dominating individual awards over that period.

Their rivalry hit its peak when the pair went toe-to-toe for the two Clasico rivals, though Ronaldo departed Spain in the summer of 2018 to move to Juventus.

Messi regrets his rival’s decision and says that the presence of the Portugal international used to add anextra spice to the match.

I wanted him to continue with Real Madrid,” Messi told RAC1.

He gave a plus to the rivalry in the Clasico and La Liga.

Real Madrid will continue to challenge because they have very good players, but I already said that the team was going to feel his loss for what he meant and that the squad would notice. But they have plenty of players to allow them to fight for every title and they have a lot of history.”

Despite a glittering array of prizes picked up throughout his career, Messi is not without regrets – most notably the Champions League semi-final exit to Liverpool last season, when they allowed their opponents to overcome a 3-0 first-leg deficit.

“The Liverpool thing was our fault,” he said, defending head coach Ernesto Valverde, who came under pressure after that defeat that has never truly lifted.

“It came after the Roma incident. We got a mental block as the Rome defeat came to mind.

“We got worse and worse and it wasn’t because of the coach.

“The club decided that he should continue and I thinkthat for everyone it was a joy because we support him and love him, like Luis Enrique or the coaches who came before him.”


Meanwhile, Messi recently won the FIFA Best Male Player award for the 2018-19 season.
