On Lionel Messi's birthday, here's what in.com imagines a letter from arch rival Cristiano Ronaldo would read like:
I know you're probably surprised reading this, considering how cold it gets between us on the pitch. But on your birthday, I'm offering a truce and here are my warmest wishes for you...
That your team wins the La Liga title next season and your brilliant performance (four goals more than me, clap, clap) doesn't go to waste...
That when fans boo you next, you're able to (like me) shut them up by scoring goals
That you start performing for your country too, considering you've scored only one goal at a World Cup and two at Copa America. Unless you insist on counting that hattrick against Brazil. But I wasn't keeping score of friendlies.
That your team's new coach is half as good as Jose Mourinho
That people stop comparing your nose to my Adam's apple
That your knocked up girlfriend and mine become better friends. Irina says that she could look pretty if she did her hair differently. And had a complete wardrobe makeover.
That even though your club's president Sandro would have me on the bench, I still hold nothing against you. That Camp Nou loss must still hurt.
So enjoy your birthday and until the next El Classico, here's me holding up a flag that's whiter than my jersey. Have fun!
