If the Argentinean fans have naturally supported La Pulga, soccer stars have done the same as well, just like Cristiano Ronaldo for example. The Real Madrid player spoke a few words about his eternal rival in the press As and Mundo Deportivo: "Messi made a difficult decision and the fans must understand. He is not accustomed to defeats, disappointments, or even second places. And missing a penalty does not make him a bad player. "
CR7 even showed that he was surprised by the news, confirming that he does not see Messi as an enemy. "Seeing Messi in tears hurts me, and I hope he will reconsider because Argentina needs him." Leo, it's time to listen Cricri.
