Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother hilariously mocked Lionel Messi

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother Dolores Aveiro once hilariously trolled Lionel Messi. The two superstars are two of the best players of the modern era.

While they have always spoken of each other highly and have always been mutually respectful, Dolores once claimed that her grandson is taller than Messi.

The incident took place when Cristiano Jr. met Messi during the 2017 Ballon d’Or. Recounting the wholesome moment, Dolores said (via SPORTbible):

“I was with him and I said, ‘look, it’s Messi, and he replied, ‘that’s not Messi, he’s short.”

Dolores added:

“Then my son encouraged him to wave. Messi is a very good person. My grandson is already taller than him, [laughs] it was a very fun moment.”

Messi, who stands at 1.65 meters or 5 feet and 7 inches, was diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency when he was 11 years old. The Argentine’s family was unable to afford his medical expenses, with FC Barcelona sponsoring the treatment when they signed him at the age of 13.

His height, though, has never stopped him from excelling on the pitch.

Cristiano Ronaldo gave a wholesome response at the 2019 UEFA awards gala when asked about his relationship with Lionel Messi. The Portuguese said:

“I shared this stage with him (Messi) for 15 years, I don’t know if it has ever happened before in football – the same two guys in the same stage all the time. Of course we have a good relationship – we have not had dinner together yet, but I hope so in the future,” Ronaldo said.

He added:

“We have that battle, he pushed me and I pushed him as well. It’s great to be a part of the history of football. I am there, and of course, he is as well.”
