Serie A: "I Deserve More Ballon d'Or Than Messi"...Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus star player, Cristiano Ronaldo, has stated that he needs more Ballon d'Or as he is not content with the number he has now. Ronaldo and his Argentina rival, Lionel Messi has both won the prestigious award five times.

The Portuguese skipper insists on getting one more Ballon d'Or before hanging his boots than Messi. He wants this in an attempt to be known as the greatest player of all time. In an interview with Piers Morgan, the 34-year-old said that he would love it and thinks in all sense hat he deserves it...

Messi is a fantastic guy, a fantastic player. He’s in the history of football – but I think I have to have six or seven or eight to be above him. My relationship with him is, we are not friends, but we have shared this stage for 15 years. I have a good relationship with him and I know that he has pushed me to be a better player and I have pushed him to be a better player as well.

The Juventus star continued...

I’m sure I’m in the history of football for what I have done and what I’m continuing to do, but one of the best players in history. For me, the number one in history, but for some fans, if the number one is another one and I’m second, it doesn’t matter. I know I’m in the history of football as one of the greatest ever.

It’s part of my sacrifice, my obsession to win, to have success. When I say success, I have worked for that. Talent is not enough, I dedicate so much that this is part of me, records are part of me. I don’t follow the records, the records follow me. I’m addicted to success, and I don’t think it’s something bad, I think it’s good. It motivates me. If you’re not motivated, it’s better to stop.

The former Real Madrid star has won five Champions League titles, broken a total of 145 individual records and has also helped Portugal to Nations League glory and to Euro 2016.
