‘MY KING’ Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister trolls Lionel Messi by posting picture of Barcelona legend worshipping Juventus star
CRISTIANO RONALDO’S sister has taken a swipe at Lionel Messi by posting a picture of the Barcelona legend ‘worshipping’ the Juventus star.
The Portuguese ace, 35, led his Juventus team to a crushing 3-0 win over Barcelona in the final Champions League Group G game on Tuesday night.
Ronaldo scored two spot-kicks to ensure the Italians won the group and gave themselves an easier last-16 tie.
The defeat also meant Barcelona slipped into second in the group – and could face Bayern Munich in the next round just months after being slaughtered 8-2 in the quarter-finals.
That loss led to utter chaos at the Nou Camp with Quique Setien being sacked, Messi threatening to quit and president Josep Maria Bartomeu ultimately resigning.
And now Ronaldo’s sister, Elma Aveiro has stuck the knife in deeper.
On Wednesday, she shared a cartoon mock-up of Messi appearing to bow to the ‘King’ on Instagram, as if worshipping him.
She wrote: “My King! Best ever. Pride of my life.”
The post has already racked up close to 40,000 likes after sharing the picture with her 436,000 followers.
Messi and Ronaldo have been locked in a battle for the title of ‘Greatest of all Time’ for 15 years now.
The Argentine has won six Ballons d’Or to Ronaldo’s five.
But Ronaldo leads the way in Champions League wins with five to Messi’s four.
But while Messi, 33, looks a little off the pace by his phenomenally high standards this season, Ronaldo, 35, just keeps going from strength to strength.
And their long-running rivalry could continue for years to come.
Messi is out of contract in the summer and is most-likely to rekindle his relationship with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, has been linked with a return to Manchester United in 2021, meaning their race for the GOAT title could rage on with both stars not only in the same league, but the same city…
