Many footballers get into heated discussions or fights with opponents on the pitch, but it was very rare to see Lionel Messi getting involved. The Argentine star would often not get too annoyed on the pitch before, but during his days at FC Barcelona, he would get furious with a certain player. FC Barcelona has a heated rivalry with Real Madrid, and the Argentine star would be involved in a few arguments with some Real Madrid players. When asked who the player angered him the most throughout his career, he named his former teammate at PSG, Sergio Ramos, who played for Real Madrid for many years. Messi said, "Rival with whom I had the most anger? I don't know, but I think with several from Real Madrid. With Sergio Ramos, for example, who later ended up being teammates, we have had a lot of fights. El Clasicos were intense and sometimes we collided."

Messi and Sergio Ramos played 46 matches together at PSG and combined for two goals. The two arrived in the 2021 summer transfer window, and they both left the French club last summer. They got along well at PSG despite many years playing against each other, as each was in FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively.

Ramos is actually the opponent who Messi faced the most throughout his career. The two played against each other 44 times. Messi won 19 games against Ramos, while the Spanish defender won 16 games against him. They both drew nine games facing each other. The two were not friendly with each other, especially when it was a decisive game between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.
