Barcelona star Lionel Messi has chosen to ignore the comments made by Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo about him during Euro 2012.

After being taunted by Denmark fans chanting Messi’s name during Portugal’s

match against Morten Olsen’s team, Ronaldo lashed out by criticising the

Argentine for failing to claim silverware with his country at Copa America in

2011.

“I have nothing to say with regards to Cristiano Ronaldo’s comments,”

Messi told reporters.

Questioned about a potential transfer to Real Madrid, Messi reiterated his

desire to retire at Barcelona, where he has played since 2000.

“I do not think about joining Madrid,” the 24-year-old said.

“Barcelona are my home and I would be delighted to play there until I

retire.

“I hope that is what happens.”

Messi went on to comment on the managerial changes at Camp Nou, with Tito

Vilanova taking the reins after Pep Guardiola decided to step down as coach to

take a year out of the game.

“We are very happy that Tito is Guardiola’s replacement,” Messi said.

“He is someone we know, he works the same way that Guardiola did.

“We are obviously sad that Pep has left us, because we did not expect it,

but with Tito the way we work will not suffer any changes.”
