Talking about the movie in an interview, Ronaldo was asked whether Messi’s brilliance inspires him to work even harder, and the player admitted that the Argentine does push him to perform.
“I’m always motivated. I don’t need other players to motivate me,” .
“But, of course, Messi is an unbelievable player, and maybe he does push me harder to become better and better. So probably, yes.”

Despite that, with the Barcelona maestro and Real talisman being considered the greatest players of their generation, fans and critics constantly compare them to each other.
