Despite of battling against each other for almost a lifetime of professional football, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo could be excellent teammates, at least according to the president of Barcelona Josep Maria Bartomeu.
Speaking about a hypothetical situation where the two would be teammates, Bartomeu said, “Good players are always compatible. They would understand each other a thousand wonders.”
Barcelona and Real Madrid are slated to play against each other in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final on 7 February. Messi, recovering from a thigh injury, is doubtful to play.
