Paris Saint-Germain Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are often put up against each other in the age-old debate about who is the best football player of all time. However, they may have more in common than that.
Messi has found his groove again after a rough first season with PSG, while Messi’s longtime rival Cristiano Ronaldo is having his worst season in recent memory.
But the Argentine’s recent talk about his family life shows that Messi and Ronaldo have a lot more in common than they thought.
The 35-year-old forward said that his middle son, Mateo, is just like his rival Cristiano Ronaldo in that he hates to lose.
Ronaldo’s favorite number is seven, which is the age of Messi’s second child, Mateo.
Speaking to the Daily Star about his tough love for his three sons Thiago, Ciro, and Mateo, the former Barcelona star gave more details about Mateo’s Ronaldo-like behavior: “That’s bad because he hates losing at anything.
“When he loses, he gets mad and starts fighting with his brothers. He’s terrible at losing, so I’ve let him win many times to avoid problems.”
Messi talks about how he is very strict with his three sons.
Sports Brief said earlier that Lionel Messi said he is strict with his three sons as the Paris Saint-Germain players talked about how he raises his kids.
Messi, who seems soft and quiet, said he is stricter with his three kids than his beautiful wife Antonela Roccuzzo.
“Between me and Antonela, I’m the one who tells the boys off most,” explained Lionel Messi when discussing his family life in an interview with an Argentine journalist.
