Messi Sends Message To Ronaldo

Lionel Messi has sent Cristiano Ronaldo a message after reports suggested he could miss Juventus' UEFA Champions League clash with FC Barcelona next week.

Five Incredible Ronaldo Records Messi 'Will Never' Break

The Bianconeri striker has been out of action since 13 October after testing positive for the coronavirus, and could potentially miss his team’s European tie with Barcelona on 28 next week.

Ronaldo returned a second positive test on Thursday, leaving his participation for the reunion with Messi in doubt.

Speaking ahead of El Clasico this weekend, the Argentine suggested that matches against Real Madrid were special, and that he hopes his counterpart will recover in time for next week Wednesday.

"Obviously when Cristiano played for Real Madrid the games were special," Messi told DAZN.

"Matches against them always are (special), but with Cristiano on the pitch they took on a particular significance.

"That is now in the past and we look forward to today’s challenges. Wednesday there could be this challenge and we hope Cristiano can be there and will soon recover from COVID."
