Current World’s best footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo prompted a fit of giggles from his Real Madrid teammates prior to Sunday’s 7-1 win over Deportivo by engaging in a Lionel Messi trash-talk with the club’s mascots.
The Portuguese superstar was approached in the tunnel by an excited young mascot, which led to a hilarious exchange:
Mascot: ‘For me you are the best in the world and Messi is…’
Ronaldo: ‘…is bad.’
Mascot: ‘The worst! The worst!’
Ronaldo: Gives thumbs up
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored twice in the game, though suffered a bad cut on his head in the process of netting his second goal.
He left the field covered in blood, but not before checking the damage on his medic’s phone screen, and some Barcelona fans who didn’t get the ”Messi joke” considered his injury karma.
