Cristiano Ronaldo: Messi For Ballon d’Or, Real Madrid For Success

Cristiano Ronaldo - CR9, Real Madrid.The current Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo, spoke some warm words about Barcelona’s Argentine superstar Lionel Messi.

The Real Madrid number 9 has been selected by France Football magazine in the 30-man list but the clear favorite to win the award is no one else but Lionel Messi.

For Cristiano Ronaldo, the focus is not set on trying to kick out Messi for the accolade, as he sincerely thinks that his Catalan rival deserves the prize this year.

Ronaldo stated:

“He’s the favorite. He [Messi] won the Champions League, the Primera league title.

“Why not him? If he wins it, he will have deserved it.”

Ronaldo also went on to praise Messi’s team as a whole. He declared:

“Barcelona play better football than Madrid, but why? Because they’ve been together for several seasons. Not two months.”

But Cristiano Ronaldo, who is proud to be part of Los Blancos, tipped Real Madrid for success by somehow pushing Barcelona into a challenge as he concluded:

“Barca are better than us today but the real question is: who will be in front at the end of the season?”
