Mourinho: Ronaldo deserved Ballon d´Or

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho believes Cristiano Ronaldo deserved to win the 2012 Ballon d’Or ahead of Lionel Messi.

The Barcelona star picked up the award for the fourth straight year, but the former Inter boss feels that Ronaldo’s exploits in La Liga should have seen him pip his rival.

“Cristiano should have won the award to the best player in the world,” Mourinho told RTP1.

“He was champion in La Liga, he was decisive in the league with all the records.”

Messi broke Gerd Muller’s 40-year record of 85 goals for club and country in a calendar year to win the award, but only won the Copa del Rey as Barca surrendered their Spanish and European crowns.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, scored 46 goals in 38 Liga appearances as Real became the first team to record a tally of 100 points.
