Saying “Messi” or saying “motherfucker” is the same for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo. That’s what famous journalist Guillem Balague has revealed in his new book.
Ronaldo refers to Messi publicly in an entirely different tone.
Ronaldo uses this nickname for Messi in the Real Madrid dressing room. There, his team-mates make a joke about the Argentine, as explained by Balague.
“The players refer to Messi as Cristiano Ronaldo’s small dog, to be put in his designer handbag.”
This is not a creative nickname. It’s just an insult.
Furthermore, it’s extended to any other Real Madrid player seen speaking to Messi.
