One of the greatest footballers of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo has sent in words of encouragement to FC Barcelona youngster Ansu Fati, who is undergoing recovery from a serious knee injury.

Ronaldo isn't known for sending in motivational and positive messages to players who have been his rivals.

In an Instagram story, Ronaldo wrote: “Let’s go @ansufati. You will be back soon! Go for it!” next to video of Fati training in the gym.

A former Real Madrid player sending a message like that to a Barcelona player may have raised some eyebrows, but this is not the first time Ronaldo has sent such a message to a player who plays at one of Ronaldo's rival clubs.

Last year Ronaldo put another Instagram story with a picture of Fati tossing a Nike boot, alongside some emojis posted of a thumbs up and a flexed biceps.

In both that post and this new one, a piece of Nike equipment (the boots before and now a ball) is displayed in the image, with the trademark swoosh logo facing forward.

Well, to make things clear, both Fati and Ronaldo are sponsored by Nike and share the same agent Jorge Mendes.
