Young midfielder Federico Valverde, currently on loan at Deportivo La Coruna from Real Madrid, had dealt a blow to Ronaldo’s ego.

The 19-year-old was quizzed on who he thinks is the best player in the world and he opted for fellow South American Messi.

However, word got around to his team-mate Ronaldo who gave him a grilling for his answer.

That is according to Spanish outlet Don Balon, who say the Portugal international was furious with the public comment which hit all of the Spanish headlines this week.

 

Valverde was quoted as saying: “They are the best players in the world, but I’m staying with Messi.”

However, Don Balon say the Uruguayan has since retracted his opinion following a discussion with Ronaldo.

Valverde moved to clear up his stance on the issue.
