Messi ignores Ronaldo jibe

The diminutive attacker remained indifferent to the comments made by the Portugal international, while restating that he wants to see out his career at Camp Nou
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 slating the Argentine's failure to claim silverware with the Albiceleste 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 added. "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," he affirmed. "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."
