Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo is not exactly very famous for sending positive messages to Barcelona players. Given the fact that they were arch-rivals, this kind of stuff is not exactly expected. However, in one of his recent Instagram stories, the former Real Madrid man was seen sending a positive message to a Barca youngster.

More from Everything Barca

In one of Ronaldo’s latest Instagram stories, he was seen sending a whole-hearted and sweet message to Barcelona youngster Ansu Fati. In the story, the youngster was seen using the gym. The Portuguese quoted a best wishes text where he wished the best for the player. He stated that he hopes for Ansu Fati to come back soon and keep fighting.

Cristiano Ronaldo wishes Ansu Fati a quick recovery at Barcelona

Fati was supposed to be a major player for Ronald Koeman’s Barca. He even started the season on a very positive note. However, he picked up a major injury that would see him out for the rest of the season. The club confirmed that the player will not be making it back any time soon.

Hence, the player was seen working out in a gym and Cristiano Ronaldo posted a picture of that on his own story. He wished for the player to get back soon on the pitch. The whole message of the story was for Ansu Fati to keep fighting this injury and come back stronger.

The message was seen as a very wholehearted gesture from Cristiano by the Barca fans. The Catalans and Real Madrid are known to be the biggest rivals in the history of the game. The former Manchester United winger is not exactly very popular amongst the Blaugrana crowd. However, this gesture can obviously be seen as a gesture of goodwill from the Madrid legend. After all, he is one of the greatest footballers of all time, and being that and taking time out to wish a very young talent for his injuries, can surely be seen as a very classy move.
