On Thursday, for the fifth time in his career, Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon d’ Or and says in an interview with France Football that he finds himself the best footballer ever. Real Madrid trainer Zinédine Zidane agrees with his star player and calls him the best player who has ever walked around on earth.
Ronaldo played a key role in the success of Real Madrid in recent years. The star player of the Royal Netherlands helped his team this calendar year to win the first country title for five years. In addition, he won with Real for the second time in a row the Champions League and he became top scorer of the tournament. He has won the balloon d’ Or as many times as Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo was hit 412 times in 418 matches for Real Madrid and won a total of 26 prizes with the clubs he played for.”Yes”, said Zidane on Friday at a press conference,”There have been many players who have written this history at this club. But nobody has shown it like him, the statistics speak for themselves. What he has done is impressive. So yes, I think he’s the best player in history.
Zidane won the Ballon d’ Or himself in 1998. He couldn’t suppress a smile on his face when asked whether Ronaldo is a better footballer than he ever was,”I was obviously better. When I have to choose, I choose myself,”says Zidane with a wink,” But seriously, you know that I think Ronaldo-san is much better, even though I have had a good career myself. There are no words to describe him. What he shows every day, every match, is phenomenal. He has written history at this club and keeps repeating it. I hope that he will end his career here.
