Cristiano Ronaldo, a logical Ballon d’Or?

While the 2021 France Football Ballon d’Or should not escape Lionel Messi, Sir Alex Ferguson simply explains why his little protégé Cristiano Ronaldo deserves the individual distinction this year.

Since the Ballon d’Or France Football does not reward a collective performance but the best individuality, Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t he ultimately the best placed for the 2021 edition? Unlike the favorite that is Lionel Messi, winner of the Copa America, the 36-year-old Portuguese won nothing with the Juventus (who even finished 4th in Serie A) and his selection. But he is perhaps the one who has hit the hardest this year.

« Cristiano deserves it Recently said Sir Alex Ferguson, as reported Mark. The iconic former coach of Manchester United Logically votes for his former colt, who had led the Red Devils to the top (2003-2009) before joining Real Madrid. And it has a strong point. ” This year he broke a record after », Recalls the Scottish veteran. Simple and effective as an argument.

Top scorer in history

It is obvious, “CR7” took advantage of the year 2021 to enter a little more into the legend of the round ball. The native of Funchal has become the top scorer in history ahead of Pelé and Josef Bican (he is 5 goals from the 800 mark). He is now the top scorer in the selections ahead of Ali Daei and the top scorer in the history of the Euro.

Individually, the five-time Ballon d’Or also finished top scorer in Serie A (29 goals) and Euro (5 goals), which could actually push the jury of international journalists to propel him into the top 5. However, for the victory, only Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema seem able to worry “La Pulga”.
