Cristiano Ronaldo is kicking off his Al-Nassr career, but the former Real Madrid star won’t be getting away from Lionel Messi despite leaving European football.
The friendly that likely saw Messi-Ronaldo play against each other for one last time wasn’t the only time the Portugal international would have to hear the Argentine’s name. Nonetheless, Al-Ittihad supporters wanted to troll Ronaldo with help from Messi.
During the matchup between Al-Nassr and Al-Ittihad, the opposing fan base decided to chant “Messi!” to troll the superstar forward.
