Elma Aveiro, sister to Portuguese football star, Cristiano Ronaldo, has sparked off the debates surrounding the rivalry between her brother and Argentine star, Lionel Messi, after posting a BT Sport graphic that shows Messi bowing to Ronaldo while he performed his trademark celebration on Instagram. Elma’s post came under the heels of a 3-0 win of Ronaldo’s Juventus over Messi’s Barcelona in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League clash. Ronaldo who scored twice from the penalty spot during the game stated that he has never considered Messi as his rival.
I have always had a very cordial relationship with him. I shared 12, 13 or 14 years of award ceremonies with him. I never saw him as a rival. He always tries to do what is best for his team and me too. I always got along very well with him. But we know that in football, for the press, for the show, a rivalry is sought, but I have always gotten along well with him. I see him as always
However, Elma thinks otherwise as she trolled the six-time Ballon d’Or winner. Her post was accompanied with the caption: ‘My king. The best ever. The pride of my life.’
