'Xavi is irrelevant'
Cristiano Ronaldo used his post-match interview following his goalscoring return against Osasuna on Saturday to hit back at former Barcelona midfielder Xavi's comments that he would never compare to Leo Messi.
Xavi said earlier this week: “Ronaldo is extraordinary but compared to Messi, there can be no comparisons. Messi will be number one until he wants to stop. He's superior to everyone."
Given, the chance, Cristiano didn't hold back in responding: “Everyone knows that if they want to get on the front page they have to speak about me. He [Xavi] doesn't have any Ballon d'Ors and I have three.”
He went on: “Why is Xavi relevant? He plays in Qatar or I don't know where. I'm the most searched-for sportsman on social media.”
