Ronaldo Backs Claims Lionel Messi Doesn't Deserve 2021 Ballon d'Or


Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has labelled an Instagram post criticizing the decision to award Lionel Messi his seventh Ballon d’Or as “fact”.


Ronaldo was absent at the ceremony in Paris on Monday but had to watch on as his eternal rival claimed yet another prize.


Messi has now won two more than the 36-year-old, whose last Ballon d’Or came back in 2018.


Ronaldo only ranked sixth in this year’s list, below Messi, Robert Lewandowski, Jorginho, Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante.


An Instagram account, with the handle cr7.0_lendario, listed all of the Portugal captain’s achievements this season, which includes breaking the international goalscoring record.


It wrote: “43 goals in the year, 6 goals in 5 games in this Champions League, all decisive and a guy who, regardless of age, continues to work miracles and is the guy who most impresses the world most often.


“They still put the guy in 6th… Do you really think that 5 guys did more than him in the year? Never.”


Ronaldo simply replied to the post by saying “facts” with a thumbs-up emoji.
