Barcelona ace Lionel Messi makes strong El Clasico statement because of Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo and Messi are seen as the two greatest of their generation and have often not seen eye-to-eye.

The Argentina international almost left the Catalan club in the summer and has opened up on exactly what happened.

“I told the club, including the president, that I wanted to go,” Messi said. “I’ve been telling him that all year. I believed it was time to step aside.

“I believed that the club needed more young players, new players and I thought my time in Barcelona was over. I felt very sorry because I always said that I wanted to finish my career here.

“It was a very difficult year, I suffered a lot in training, in games and in the dressing room. Everything became very difficult for me and there came a time when I considered looking for new ambitions.
