There are players who can say that they have been teammates of the greatest players in the history of football. They seem few, but many of them have great anecdotes to tell about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as the joy of having shared a dressing room with them.

Agustín Rossi was a star at Boca Juniors in recent years. His great performances earned him a place in the Argentina national team in certain World Cup qualifiers. Despite this he was never able to be a starter leaving Emiliano 'Dibu' Martinez as the great leader in goal.

Surprisingly, he accepted an offer from Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia. He could have arrived due to the injury of the Colombian David Ospina, and there he could have shared the dressing room with Cristiano Ronaldo, but in the end he lost the starting position to the local Nawaf Al-Aqidi and decided to leave the Middle Eastern league to return to Brazil.

But that does not detract from the anecdotes he has had with these great players. Like when Messi gave him the shirt from Argentina's 3-0 win over Bolivia in the World Cup qualifiers for Qatar 2022.

Why did Ronaldo get angry with him?

In an interview with TV channel TyC Sports, Agustin Rossi confesses that it was important to be Ronaldo's teammate at Al-Nassr, although the Portuguese did not like the fact that he could save penalties in the team's training sessions. Rossi now plays for Jorge Sampaoli's Flamengo.
