Ronaldo: I´ve done everything to win Ballon d´Or

Cristiano Ronaldo believes he has done everything possible to win the 2016 Ballon d’Or prize.

The 31-year-old is among the favourites to claim France Football’s award for the world’s best player after a stellar 12 months for club and country.

Ronaldo hit 51 goals in 48 matches in all competitions for Real Madrid last season, including 16 in 12 Champions League appearances as Zinedine Zidane’s side won the trophy for the second time in three years.

The forward then captained Portugal to their first major title at Euro 2016, scoring three times to help them reach the final, where a solitary strike from Eder secured a 1-0 win over France.

Ronaldo, who has been criticised for some of his performances in 2016-17, struck a hat-trick as Madrid beat city rivals Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon on Saturday, prompting Zidane to claim that any debate over who should win the Ballon d’Or should now end.

And the player himself feels he could not have done any more to earn the prize following what he considers to have been the best season of his illustrious career.

“I’ve done everything for this season,” he told Telefoot.

“We won the Champions League, I won the Euros with Portugal. The vote doesn’t depend on me and I don’t want to be obsessed with it.

“But if you ask me if I want to win the Ballon d’Or, I’d say yes. This year has been amazing for me, with all the trophies. It’s my best season, no doubt about that.”

The winner, who will be voted for by a panel of journalists from across the world, will be announced on December 13.

    Are you begging for ballon d’or, so sorry for that mr cr7, did work hard for it…… Nooooooo

    Uhmm.. i don’t want to sound rude… but..are you stupid or something? You don’t need to be a fanboy or specialist to see how hard ronaldo works in training/every match. You might not like him
    Off the pitch, you might not think he’s the best player ever. Heck you might dislike him for even the most unfair reason. Okay, but.. even then you must agree:
    1. He was a huge part in Real madrid winning the champions league. Scoring tons of goals. And being a huge impact.
    2. It was beccause of him ( and the effort of some other players) that portugal even made it that far.. true he didn’t get the chance in the final itself( not beccause “he didnt work hard” but beccause he got fouled and injured) but he scored most of their qualification goals.. he was the hero in those imporant matches. He pushed through in the euro tournament, captained, fought and scored goals.
    Was he in shape? No even a blind man could see that he was a little bit injured and overly tired. But he still worked hard. And they won the euro’s. It was a team effort. But a team effort where ronaldo played a huge part in.

    So both in the euro conquest and the champions. Ronaldo was an influental player( if not the all round most prolific/important player) how does he not deserve the ballon d’or?
    He won the two most important prices of the year.
    Was important in them both. Worked his ass off, broke records, scored an insane amount of goals. And was even a team player in the euros..
    If thats not worthy of the ballon d’or then heck i dont know what is.
    Or do you want to give messi the ballon d’or? For what? Being good last year? For being youe fav player? For winning the league?

    If winning la liga is enough to win you the ballon d’or
    Then iniesta should win it… or a rakitic who where really important for barcas midfield and creativity..

    I’m not arguing about who’s the all time better player. We’ll argue that when both messi and ronaldo stoped playing footbal.

    But for now we neee to be fair. Who has had a bettwr year. More impact, and records broken.

    This year it was ronaldo.
    End of discussion. Next season it might be messi? Or ronaldo? Or somebody else? Who knows

  3. I said yes to Ronaldo cos he has done a lot for the club in all area

  4. ismail says:
