Striker Cristiano Ronaldo was ready to retire because of Lionel Messi.

The words of the Portuguese, who now represents Manchester United, are published in a book by former France Football journalist Thierry Marchand, which went on sale on November 9.

In one of nine interviews held in October 2019, Ronaldo commented on his move to Juventus from Real Madrid.

It`s easy to stay in your bubble when you`re successful. Don`t leave your comfort zone. I`ve always done things differently.

I dared to move to Turin, change clubs and leagues, and immerse myself in a new football culture. I put myself at risk. I took a risk, and I`m sure it deprived me of the Ballon d`Or in 2018. I don`t regret anything, but. . . . .

If Messi wins the Ballon d`Or this year, I will quit football! - Ronaldo said.

In 2018, the award went to Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric. Messi won the prize in 2019 and again in 2021.
