The years of rivalry between Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos has turned into an enforced camaraderie after they joined the French club Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer last summer. A video from PSG's training session has been getting viral where a hint of the old rivalry between the two footballers is observed by the fans.
During a training session, both the footballers played for different teams when the former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos tried tackling the former Barcelona forward Lionel Messi. However, Messi escaped the unpleasant tackle attempt by Ramos and went on to score a right-footed goal.
After scoring the goal, the Argentine turned back and glared at his PSG teammate Ramos before exchanging a few comments and resuming the training session. The video of the incident has gone viral as fans relived the El Clasico era where both these stars used to face each other.
