Deco: Ronaldo for Ballon d’Or

Portugal and Chelsea midfielder Deco has become the latest high profile player to consider Cristiano Ronaldo as the right candidate to win the Ballon d’Or Award.

Ronaldo has collected a number of individual honours for his performance last season, including the European Player of the Year award and the FIFPro World Footballer of the Year.

Speaking to the media, Deco recalled that the criteria to win the Ballon d’Or were based on last season’s performance. And talking about last season, the Blue midfielder declared that Ronaldo was unbeatable.
Simple facts: Ronaldo scored over 40 goals (which included outstanding free kicks) despite being a winger. Ronaldo also performed consistently for Manchester United, and helped the team clinch the double.

The 23 year old winger will become only the second Portuguese player after Luis Figo to win the prestigious French award if he indeed gets it in December.
