Ronaldo: I’d vote for myself!

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted he would vote for himself to win the Ballon d'Or if it were possible.

The Portuguese winger, who has a vote as captain of his national side, made the comments in an interview with France Football Magazine, who hand out the prestigious prize along with FIFA.

“If I could I'd vote for myself. Being humble is not too good. In Portugal we say that too much humility is vanity.”

The former Manchester United man claimed he is not interested in a move to one of Europe's nouveau riche clubs.

“I play with passion for football, for the love of the shirt. If I played for the money, I would surely be with another club. All the players love that teams such as Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Chelsea dream of them, but that does not go through my head.”
