Ronaldo remain silent on Ballon D'or question

    Cristiano Ronaldo refused to answer whether Portugal’s victory over the Netherlands will aid his chances of reclaiming the Ballon d’Or.

    The Portugal star and his long rival Lionel Messi had won every Ballon d’Or for a decade until Luka Modric broke up that dominance with his victory in 2018.

    It is expected Messi’s standout season will return him to the forefront of the conversation in 2019, and the Barcelona star will have an opportunity to pad his resume when Argentina take part in the Copa America this summer.

    And with Ronaldo’s Portugal getting the better of Van Dijk’s Netherlands 1-0 in the final thanks to Goncalo Guedes' 60th minute winner, there is some question whether the forward has vaulted himself back into the conversation.

    But Ronaldo did not wish to discuss that in the mixed zone following the victory.

    When asked if the Portugal’s victory takes him closer to a sixth Ballon d’Or, Ronaldo answered: “The goal for the match was to win and to play well.”

    Ronaldo continued to be pressed as he left the mixed zone, but when once again asked about the award, told reporters: “No, I will not speak about the Ballon d’Or.”

    We both know that Ronaldo don't merit making the top three if we are to judge by player individual performance. Even if we are to go by club success, I still he will still come short, nevertheless, Ronaldo fans will think otherwise.
