Cristiano Ronaldo Comments On His Ballon d’Or Chances

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has commented on his chances of reclaiming the FIFA Ballon d'Or crown from longstanding rival Lionel Messi.

The Portuguese recently won his first major international title, the European Championship, with Portugal in France, and seems destined to win this year's Golden Ball, having also lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy with Los Blancos.

"This victory will help me, but I'm not obsessed by it (the Ballon d'Or)," he told reporters after the Euro final, as quoted by AS.

"I've been looking to win (a major international trophy) for a long time now… since 2004. I'm really happy, it's one of the best moments of my career.

"I've always said that I wanted to win something with Portugal to go down in history, and I've done it."

One of Ronaldo's rivals for this year's Ballon d'Or will be Atletico Madrid and France forward Antoine Griezmann, but the Euro 2016 Player of the Tournament has insisted the prestigious title already has Ronaldo's name on it.

"The Ballon d'Or? Cristiano has won it," the Frenchman said, according to Football Espana.

"I wanted to win the trophy and then maybe think about the Ballon d'Or. Now it's no longer in my head.

"Cristiano won the most important competitions, so I think it's his."

The Euro title was Ronaldo's first major triumph with his national team, and was also the Portuguese's 18th trophy overall.

"For me, there is no heir to Messi. There will never be one. There will be very good footballers, but nobody at Messi's level," he told Sport. "To be at the top for so many years, winning so many individual and team trophies, will be impossible to surmount. "In the future, everything will be more equal amongst the best players. "Though now they try to sell the story of the Cristiano and Messi battle, those of us who know football know there is no comparison. "When Messi ends his career, there will be Neymar, Hazard, five or 10 players at a similar level, but none with the unquestionable superiority of Messi."

@Polish Moyana. Deciding penalty against hungaray? u need to stop this hatred man, it is clouding your judgement and you are being really impulsive and emotional. It was a wonderful backheel and a header in that game.

Pique has been too quiet.... Arbeloa was correct, to shut him up is by winning the champions league, on top on that CR7 added the euro.. I wonder in what hole he has dug himself into
