There have been tons of words written about the rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as both of them became icons in the world of football, but today, the Portuguese ace busted that myth wide open after leading Juve to a three-nil win at Messi's home.

Speaking after the game between Juventus and Barcelona, the Portuguese striker clarified that despite what people might think, the relationship between them has not been bitter. In fact, CR7 decided to praise his colleague and wished him well in his efforts to lead Barcelona back to greatness this season.

"I have always had a cordial relationship with Messi. I have never seen Messi as my rival. He tries to do what is best for his team, as I do. It is the press who have created the rivalry. If you ask him, I'm sure that he will tell you the same," the Portuguese ace said.

Then, the former Real Madrid striker added that Messi's alleged slump with Barcelona will come to an end soon, giving fans a chance to praise his performances in the near future.
