That’s him and Lionel Messi.”

Cristiano Ronaldo uses Lionel Messi as fuel for motivation’
Rio Ferdinand recently told Gary Lineker how Cristiano Ronaldo uses the slightest things to push himself to become better than Lionel Messi.He said on the BBC:
“It’s a great example to young players and he uses negativity as fuel. You’ve [Lineker] said some things like your preference would be [Lionel] Messi out of the two.
“He [Cristiano Ronaldo] will send me a text saying, ‘I can’t believe he said that, can’t believe he’s done that,’ he just uses anything [as fuel]. You think he’s done so much in his life, ‘Why do you care about what anyone says about you? You know you’re the guy.’ It’s the competitive nature. That’s all it is. And you need that.”
