Brazil's Ronaldo left Real due to Capello

Brazil's Ronaldo left Real due to Capello

While Lionel Messi has won one more Ballon d'Or award than Ronaldo, should Ronaldo win the Champions League against Juventus, it will be very hard to argue against the Portuguese superstar being crowned Ballon d'Or victor for the 5 time in 2017.

"This year I would choose Cristiano Ronaldo to win it", Ronaldo, a three-time recipient of football's highest individual honour, was quoted as saying by Fox Sports. Authorities are now calling for a two-year sentence for him for related to a corruption case connected to his 2013 transfer to the Catalan club. "His statistics can't be ignored".

While Ronaldo's legend is well established, another player has emerged on the world stage this year in the shape of Monaco's Mbappe, who is attracting interest from Europe's biggest clubs - including Varane's Madrid. "Both players deserve respect", he concluded.

Cristiano Ronaldo is eager for more titles and the Real Madrid star is already looking forward to the final in Cardiff against Juventus.

Ronaldo has now admitted he did not want to leave Los Blancos when he did, but felt he had to after numerous arguments with then manager Fabio Capello over his weight.

Young Ronaldo takes a long run up, and, after a team mate makes a dummy run, strikes the ball expertly with his laces.

"I have played fewer games than in previous seasons, and that showed at the end - we have managed it more intelligently". I am tolerant, I want to understand other points of view.

Messi has some catching up to do, but with just one year left on his current deal, there's a good chance Barcelona will give him a hefty raise in the near future.

I understood his position as a coach, but sometimes, in football, it is not 100 or 200 grams that make the difference.
