Ronaldo: I’m the best ever

Cristiano Ronaldo, who won his fifth Ballon d’Or award this week, believes he is the greatest player in the history of football.

The Real Madrid forward equalled Lionel Messi’s record of individual titles for the greatest player in football, winning four of the last five awards and coming nine years after his first.

“I’m the best player in the history of football,” Ronaldo told France Football.

“I don’t see anyone who is better than me, no player has achieved things that I have not done myself and I have done many things that others cannot do.

“There is not a more complete player than me and I believe I am the best player in the history of football, in the good and the bad moments.”

The Portuguese superstar has enjoyed a glittering 24 months, winning La Liga, two Champions League and a European Championships crown with Portugal.
