Lionel Messi’s interesting reaction after a fan tried to give him Cristiano Ronaldo’s jersey

Lionel Messi had an interesting reaction when a young fan tried to give him a Cristiano Ronaldo shirt.

Messi and Ronaldo have shared the world stage for more than 15 years, winning a total of 12 Ballon d’Or awards between them. It’s a rivalry with roots in Spain, when the pair played for Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.

Messi has now decided to continue his career in the United States of America, where he plays for Inter Miami, after an unsuccessful adventure with PSG.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, currently plays in Saudi Arabia for Al Nassr, where he tops the list of top goalscorers this season after scoring an impressive brace last game.

But despite playing on different continents, fans have continued to debate who is better, with one fan wearing Ronaldo’s shirt in front of Messi’s face, prompting a rather interesting reaction from the 36-year-old.


Messi appeared ‘shocked’ when he saw Ronaldo’s shirt, before staring at the fan holding it.

The Argentine is favorite to win his eighth Ballon d’Or on Monday after leading his country to World Cup glory in Qatar.
