'Next Year, We'll See Again At The Ballon d'Or' -Ronaldo Speaks Out

Share

Cristiano Ronaldo is convinced he should have won this year's Ballon d'Or, rather than finishing as runner-up to ex-Real Madrid team-mate Luka Modric.

He also left behind his fellow five-time Ballon d'Or victor Messi, but now wants his former rival - who has only ever played for Barcelona - to join him in Italy.

"He wore it against Melilla [in the Copa del Rey last week], and he said to me then that next time, if the circumstance came about again, he would let me have it". I respect the decision.

Solari said that "humility is the virtue of the greats", highlighting that Real Madrid is a big and humble team as evidenced by the number of titles claimed by the Spanish club.

Mueller has brought criminal charges against a series of Russian individuals and entities but those cases are still pending. Butina also faces the possibility she will be deported after she serves any prison sentence the judge choses to impose.

Ronaldo has jibed that Messi misses him, telling the Argentine to move to Italy to continue their rivalry.

"I think there are few players who take care of their body like he does, with so much desire to improve". For him, life is a challenge.

He said: "I can say this (at Juventus) is the best group I've ever played with. This is my new life and I am happy".

The evening was to end in disappointment for CSKA also, however, with Plzen's 2-1 home win over Roma meaning that the Russian side finished fourth in the group despite their historic win.

No Confidence Vote In Theresa May Triggered By Tory MPs
May's harshest critics supported her remaining leader, arguing a leadership race now would have been too disruptive. May has warned that if MPs vote down her plan the country risks crashing out on this date with no agreement.

The relationship of Ronaldo with Messi has been pretty unusual as they turned the annual Ballon d'Or into one personal contest, sharing every title since the year 2008 till the pair had been pipped last week by Luke Modric.

"We work intensively with the coaching staff, the doctors and the players so that we have the most players available for each match".

Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, FC Porto, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are Manchester United's possible opponents in the Champions League last 16. For me it's attractive, I can sense the difference. Also at Madrid they are humble, but here I feel that sense more. Juventus is a solid club. "I don't know what the reason for that was". I'd played several times in Italy.

"I couldn't be 100 per cent sure I was joining the best club in the world".
