El Mundo Deportivo says it began over the summer when Marcelo declared he'd like to see Iker Casillas win the Ballon d'Or and also praised Barcelona star Lionel Messi. The comments made their way back to Ronaldo, who hit the roof. Marcelo was forced to clarify things while on tour with Brazil in the US.
