Barcelona legend, Dani Alves has come out to say that he was once involved in a scuffle with Cristiano Ronaldo at a Ballon d’Or ceremony. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, on a particular day in the dressing room of the Ballon d’Or ceremony, he got angry because Ronaldo did not greet him simply because of how the Barcelona-Real Madrid rivalry was generating outside.
Alves, however, added that he absolutely respects the guy who has achieved everything in football based on hard work.
His words, “There came a time because of the rivalry that I would go over to greet him [Ronaldo] and he wouldn’t greet me,”
“There was a controversy that never came out, but in the dressing room of the Ballon d’Or ceremony we had a scuffle, I greeted everyone and he didn’t greet me because of what the Barcelona-Real Madrid rivalry was generating outside. But how can I not respect a guy who has achieved everything based on hard work and putting his heart and soul into it?”
On Messi, “He was born with the talent to play football and to be in another world that only he can reach.”
