The Brazilian took to social media and said, “Congratulations to @Cristiano on winning this year’s Ballon d’Or. I would love to have played on the same side as you!”




The 77 year old who is considered to the one of the best footballers to have played the game, won the World Cup thrice with Brazil and scored over a 1000 goals in his career.

Ronaldo, who now has the same number of Ballon D’Or titles as Lionel Messi (5) beat off competition from the Barcelona man and the Brazilian forward Neymar – they were both second and third respectively.




Ronaldo, who unlike Messi has now won the award with two different clubs, Manchester United and Real Madrid, took to social media after receiving the award and said it was “Another Dream Come True”

He also said, "Thanks for my family, friends, teammates, coaches and everyone that stood by my side throughout the years."
