Messi praises Ronaldo: He is a predatory, of course he will score many goals
Barcelona striker Lionel Messi has praised his rival, Cristiano Ronaldo, for his ability to score numerous goals. Saying he is not at all surprised by the fantastic form of the Portuguese in front of the gate recently.
Juventus star Ronaldo has scored 11 consecutive Serie A appearances. Though, this month he has became 35 years old and has 24 goals so far this season in all competitions.
For Messi, meanwhile, it has been for games without scoring but has, however, contributed six assists in the last three games for the Catalan giants.
Although, both have always been very productive in front of the gate. Messi believes Ronaldo is obsessed with scoring goals and the Argentine is not surprised that the Portuguese is still shining inside the area.
“It is normal that he is still scoring. He is a rookie striker, he likes to score and he will score whenever he plays,” Messi told Mundo Deportivo last night about Ronaldo’s recent appearances.
“He has many good qualities as an attacker and is able to score from the smallest opportunity,” he added.
