Lionel Messi produced one of the most memorable penalty kicks of all time against Celta Vigo last weekend, and even 'rival' Cristiano Ronaldo is trying to recreate the spot kick.
Earlier in the day, Ronaldo told the press that "I know why Leo did that, I don't say no more." - basically, he inferred that Messi would have missed the penalty if he didn't pass.
Ahead of the Champions League tie against Roma, Ronaldo was caught joking around with teammates Marcelo, Alvaro Arbeloa and Keylor Navas about the penalty.
The following conversation is thought to have taken place:
Marcelo: "Cris, Arbeloa will take it"."
Ronaldo: "Arbeloa will take it and then finish it."
Arbeloa: "Wait and see, I'll do it!"
Cristiano: "I'm sure Arbeloa will shoot." (simulates a slip).
Navas: "The other way around, the other way around, Arbeloa will take it and pass to Cristiano."
Arbeloa: "That's it."
Here is a video to show what happened during the conversation:
