1. Ronaldo will win his FIFTH Ballon d’Or to go level with Messi- Madrid President
Real Madrid President Fiorentino Perez believes Cristiano Ronaldo will win 2017 Ballon d’Or award. The Portuguese lifted FIFA Best Male Player of the year this year and his president has no doubt he will emerge victorious again. The 32-year-old will go level with Lionel Messi if he lifts the award again this year.
“Ronaldo is one of our great symbols,” he told an assembly of Madrid members. “He is the leading goalscorer in our history. A few days ago, he won his second ‘The Best’ and this week he is going to win his fifth Ballon d’Or.”
The Los Blancos are struggling in La Liga so far this season. However, the President does not believe there is any need to change a coach who delivered two consecutive UEFA Champions League titles.
“We achieved the impossible, regaining the Champions League and winning three in four years. The last one was the best in our history,” said Perez.
“We have a team to keep dreaming, with an amazing coach. He is one of our great symbols and icons. He’s the best leader for this team.”
