Ronaldo wants Messi to resume their rivalry in Italy


When Ronaldo was asked if he misses Messi, who has spent his entire senior career at Barcelona, the Portuguese player had a cheeky reply.

"I've played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal and for my national team, while he's still in Spain".

Solari took responsibility for a lineup I that included seven players aged 23 or under, and others including Marcelo, Isco and Asensio who had not played much La Liga football lately.

He said: "I can say this (at Juventus) is the best group I've ever played with". But if he's happy there then I respect that: he's a fantastic footballer, a great lad, but I'm not missing anything here.

Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Juventus in the summer, leaving Real Madrid after nine years.

To mark his 150 days in Italy he gave interviews today to three leading sports dailies: La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport. For me it's attractive, I can sense the difference.

"I believe that they deserve the "Golden ball" every year", - quotes Ronaldo AS. "It has a long history", he said of his decision.

Since losing 3-0 at Eibar in LaLiga in their first match with Solari as permanent boss, Real have played four times in all competitions and won on each occasion. "I believed in myself and proved to the people that I'm still an incredible footballer".

The evening was to end in disappointment for CSKA also, however, with Plzen's 2-1 home win over Roma meaning that the Russian side finished fourth in the group despite their historic win.

Madrid will not be too disheartened by their performance, given Solari made big changes to his starting XI for the game.

His dad has enjoyed a similar start to life with the senior team, scoring 11 goals in his first 19 games as the Old Lady continue their 100 per cent start to Serie A. He revealed the reason why Madrid players keep beating Lionel Messi for the Ballon d'Or.

Speaking to Fox News, Zlatan Ibrahimovic said the following about Modric bagging the prize: "Now we know it was Perez who was competing with Messi".

He added: "Without faith in yourself and your team you can't go out on the pitch".

Solari appeared in the press room at the Santiago Bernabéu to assess the clash with CSKA in the final round of Champions League Group Stage games: "We were not decisive enough in either area".

Ronaldo himself admitted he felt he was hard done after missing out on a record sixth title.

"The Champions League can not be an obsession, you have to think about it calmly", he warned.

Peep! CSKA get us underway in Madrid! .
