By Naomisophy blog
Brazil football legend, Ronaldo De Lima has admitted he cannot bear the thought of Argentina becoming world champions this year.
Ronaldo, speaking with SportsMail, however, admitted Messi deserves to win the World Cup, although he will not support him and his country.
According to him, the only way he wants Messi to win it, is if he gets Spanish or Italian citizenship.
Ronaldo was asked: “If Brazil can’t win in Qatar is there a part of him that wants Messi to lift the trophy?”
The former Real Madrid striker replied: “If he gets Spanish nationality first.
“Spanish or Italian, whatever. It’s the rivalry between Brazil and Argentina. I have huge respect for them but I can’t bear to think of Argentina as world champions.
“Does Messi deserve it? Of course he does! But not with my support! I love him, and he’s going to understand because you can be sure he feels exactly the same!”
