This is a three-minute clip but the key moment takes place at 1.09. The entire video is worth watching as it features great footage from the recent El Clasico in a Zidane movie kinda way. Speaking of which, wouldn’t a ZZ-style movie of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo be rather excellent?
The two best players in the world scored two goals each last Sunday night. Previously, the Paddy Power Blog has featured this clip of Messi snubbing a Ronaldo handshake.
Now this video has emerged from the respected Canal +. It appears to show Messi asking Ronaldo how his shoulder is after the Real Madrid striker picked up an injury in the game. Although, as he covers his mouth, Messi could also be asking CR7 for his suggestions on 20 biscuits to never ever feed an owl.
Either way, it’s fascinating footage on a dull football week on the world’s greatest footballing rivalry right now.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho says he would nominate Ronaldo to win the Ballon d’Or.
I think it should be forbidden to say who [is] the best player in the world because these two are from another planet. I would like my player to win [the Ballon d'Or] because he is champion of the best league in the world, but I think they’re both fantastic players.
