“I like to play with the best players and Messi has been one of the best in the world -Ramos
The pair have faced each other in fierce El Clasico encounters where Messi remains the leading goal scorer; Ramos also inspired Real Madrid to several wins including when they met last October in La Liga.
Now they put all that behind and play together at PSG as both moved to the French club following the expiration of their respective contracts in Spain.
“I have huge respect for him,” “I think he’s one of the greatest players in history.
Both players spent so many years going head-to-head in frosty El-Clasico clashes, and who can forget the famous picture of them butting heads from many moons ago.
But the latest picture of the pair is from some of the aggression-filled images that came before, with the superstars now working towards the same cause in Paris Saint Germain.
Real Madrid and Barcelona, who between them won every UEFA Champions League final from 2014-18, are living, and dying, by free transfers.
Like the Catalans, Los Blancos decided they could not afford a new contract for their talismanic captain. Like Messi, Sergio Ramos departed for a late-career jackpot at Paris Saint-Germain.
