Cristiano Ronaldo reignites Lionel Messi rivalry with quip: 'He is bad'
While Cristiano Ronaldo ended Real Madrid's 7-1 thrashing of Deportivo la Coruna with a bloodied shirt and a sore face, the forward was in good spirits in the tunnel before kick-off.
Talking to his matchday mascot, conversation turned to Lionel Messi only for Ronaldo to quickly cut in and crack a witty quip at the Barcelona forward's expense.
"For me, you are the best player in the world and Messi..." said the youngster, attempting to strike up a conversation with Ronaldo.
"...Is bad," the Real star injected before offering a cheeky thumbs-up.
The eternal rivalry rages on.
