Cristiano Ronaldo says he deserves more Ballon d’Ors than Lionel Messi

Cristiano Ronaldo is decided to finish his career with at least one more Ballon because he tries to establish himself.
The Portugal skipper and his Barcelona and Argentina rival have every promised the award winning, after being voted the best player in the world, on five occasions, but Ronaldo is unsatisfied with that.
“I would love [more], and that I think I deserve it,” said the Juventus forward on ITV’s Cristiano Ronaldo Meets Piers Morgan.
“Messi is a wonderful man, a fantastic player. He’s in the background of football but I believe I must have seven or six or eight to be above him.
“My connection with him isalso, we are not buddies, but we have shared this point for 15 years.
“I have a fantastic relationship with him and I know that he has pushed me to be a much better player and I’ve pushed him to be a much better player as well.”
The 34-year-old, who agreed that Messi is against, hopes to be remembered as one of the greatest – if not the best – footballers that the sport has ever seen.
He said:”I’m convinced I’m at the background of football for what I have done and what I am continuing to perform, but one of the greatest players ever.
“For me personally, the number one ever, but for a few fans, in the event the number one is another one and I am next, it doesn’t matter.
“I know I’m at the history of football among the biggest ever.”
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player has five Champions League successes to his own name and has led Portugal to Nations League glory and Euro 2016.
He has got 145 records, including the all-time top goalscorer and the most goals of Europe.
He explained:”It’s part of my sacrifice, my obsession to win, to have success. When I say success, I’ve worked for that. Talent isn’t enough, I dedicate records are part of me.
“I do not follow the records, the documents follow . I’m addicted to this success, and I don’t think it’s something bad, I think that it’s good. It inspires me. If you’re not inspired, it’s better to stop.”
