Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi has given reasons he and Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo will never share a close friendship.
According to Messi, the duo do not get to spend enough time together to build the required bond.
Messi and Ronaldo have shared a formidable rivalry throughout their La Liga careers and have collected myriad individual honours between them.
Messi, however, claimed the alleged enmity between them is very much created by the media, but admitted the pair are unlikely to ever consider one another friends.
“I don’t know if we will be. Friendship is built through spending time together and getting to know each other”, Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
“We have no relationship, mainly because we only see each other at awards ceremonies and that’s the only time we speak.
“Everything is fine, but our lives don’t cross over very often.”
