Messi not friends with Ronaldo but happy to accept dinner date invitation
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi admits to not being a close friend of Cristiano Ronaldo, but says he would happily accept a dinner invitation from the Juventus forward, APA reports citing Goal.com.
The two eternal rivals saw their paths cross once more at the recent UEFA awards gala.
Sitting alongside one another on the front row, the pair were asked about their relationship – having spent many years competing for collective and individual prizes.
Quizzed by Spanish publication Sport on whether he would accept an invitation were a formal one to be tabled, Messi said: “Yes, I don’t have any problem with that.
“I’ve always said that I don’t have any issue with him. 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."
“We actually spoke with each other for quite a long time at the most recent show.
“I don’t know if there will be a dinner because I don’t know if our paths will cross for obvious reasons, each one of us has our own life and our own commitments. But obviously I would accept the invitation.”
