Cristiano Ronaldo has moved to deny claims that he called Barcelona forward Lionel Messi offensive names inside the Real Madrid dressing room.

In a new book by Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, he claimed that Ronaldo has a cold and distant relationship with Messi and often refers to him in the most unflattering language. Balague claims that Cristiano Ronaldo often called Messi a MFA

Balague also claims that around the Real Madrid dressing room, Messi is usually portrayed as a puppy carried around in Ronaldo’s carry-on bag


Cristiano Ronaldo refuted Balague’s claims and stated that he would never disrespect a fellow professional in the manner described in the book

Writing on his official Facebook page, he said: “News is circulating that I allegedly made offending remarks regarding Lionel Messi. This is absolutely false and I have assured my lawyer takes action to sue those responsible. I have the utmost respect for all my professional colleagues, and Messi is obviously no exception.”

Ronaldo and Messi are the best players of their generation by a mile having won the Ballon d’Or – given to the world’s best player over the previous 12 months – six times between them. Both players are currently in contention for this year’s Ballon d’Or award.
