Cristiano Ronaldo publicly backs claims that Lionel Messi was undeserving of the Ballon D’Or

Cristiano Ronaldo has publicly backed claims from a fan account that Lionel Messi stole the Ballon d’Or from himself and Robert Lewandowski.

PSG star Messi won his seventh Ballon d’Or on Monday night, beating Bayern Munich marksman Lewandowski to the prize by 33 votes.

Ronaldo – a five-time winner – finished sixth and 435 votes astray of Messi, yet the Manchester United forward has poured scorn on his Argentinean rival’s victory, commenting ‘facts’ underneath a fan post detailing why the Portugal captain deserved the gong over Messi.
