After winning the Ballon d’Or forth time, Cristiano Ronaldo targets Lionel Messi. CR7 said if Messi will have been his teammate, he will win more Ballon d’Or.
“It was very interesting if Messi and I play in the same team. Great players should play in one team. I can tell you, my Ballon d’Or number would more if we play in a same team. But yes, Messi wouldn’t be far behind,” Ronaldo said.
After winning the Ballon d’Or yesterday, Ronaldo has opened his mouth today. And naturally, he put his manners off. However, he reminded this of his rival, “Everybody knows how great player Lionel Messi is. He won 5 Ballon d’Or.”
Messi is still ere in Ballon d’Or score line in 5-4. So Ronaldo doesn’t want to be satisfied with four. CR7 wants to bring equality in the fight of superiority. He wants to keep the golden ball in his personal trophy cabinet next year as well. “Of course, I’ll try. At least that is my goal. I’ll be fighting,” he said.
However, mission La Liga is more important now for Ronaldo that the mission of five Ballon d’Or. For the last few years, La Liga meant Barcelona’s monopoly. The Ballon d’Or winning footballer is desperate to start with Spain’s Galactico over Barsa ‘kingdom’.
Ronaldo said, “Real Madrid is desperate to win the La Liga title. If possible then Champion League and Copa del Rey. I want to win everything.”
The real secret behind his winning is fitness. He is aged over 30 but doesn’t compromise fitness for anything.
“I always want to be physically fit. Each person loses some things after aging. This is normal. Not only this season, I do think about the next season as well. It should be done with intelligence. Training should be good,” he said.
Ronaldo also praised the fitness staffs of Real Madrid saying, “I always learn. A season is not a sprint, but a marathon. You must think of the ending of the season than the beginning. Everyone gives me advice in Real as well.”
Cristiano Ronaldo (745) got double vote than Messi for Ballon d’Or. Atoya Griezmann was on the third position. Ronaldo has the most Ballon d’Or of the European footballers like Zidane, Kulit.
So what’s his goal? Ronaldo said that he wanted to play football more days as possible.
He said, “I know that a time will come when I won’t win the Ballon d’Or. But my real goal is to play football. I want to do training even in rain or cold. The day I’ll not be able to do that, I’ll leave football.”
The Ballon d’Or is an award given to the best performing football player around the world. The FIFA Ballon d’Or was awarded based on votes from international journalists and national team coaches and captains, who selected the players they deemed to have performed the best in the previous calendar year.
