Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken on his rivalry with Lionel Messi after completing his move to Italian champions, Juventus.
Ronaldo said he does not view Messi as a rival but a good challenge.
Ronaldo and Messi have been considered as the best in the world for the last decade.
Both stars have also been at the heart of the rivalry since Ronaldo left the Premier League for the LA Liga in 2009.
Ronaldo joined the Serie A champions for €100 million (£88.5m).
Asked about his rivalry with Messi, the Portugal captain replied, “I do not see other players as rivals, that’s not who I am.
“It was a good challenge with Messi. All of you liked it and it was interesting.
“But I never saw it as a rivalry. You always want to give it your all for your team.”
