Cristiano Ronaldo has sat down for a colossal interview with ‘France Football‘ and unsurprisingly, he is unwavering that he deserves to win the Ballon d’Or.
The former Los Blancos forward is one of the various contenders for this year’s prestigious football prize, but he isn’t fancied to bring home the much celebrated annual award as much as in earlier years.
The performances of Antoine Griezmann and Luka Modric mean they may, at last, bring an end to the Ronaldo/Messi ten-years reign, though the Portuguese star insists that, that ought not to be the situation.
The 33-year-old has conquered a sticky start to life with the Old Lady, scoring seven goals in his last seven Seria A games, laying on four assists in the same time.
Notwithstanding, while Ronaldo concedes that he is frantic to win the Ballon d’Or, he insists that it’s anything but an “obsession” of his.
I’ve said it plenty of times, winning a sixth Ballon d’Or is not an obsession and I wouldn’t phrase the question like that.
“I already know deep down that I am one of the best players in history. Of course I want to win a sixth Ballon d’Or! It would be a lie to say otherwise.
That’s what I work for, just like I work to score goals and win matches without it being an obsession.
“The Ballon d’Or, yes, I think I deserve it.”
