Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nasr) shot the Ballon d’Or, FIFA Player of the Year.
“The Ballon d’Or and FIFA Player of the Year are losing credibility,” Ronaldo said in a Portuguese Hecord on the 21st (local time).월카지노
Ronaldo was not shortlisted for the 2023 Ballon d’Or and FIFA Player of the Year. On the other hand, Ronaldo’s perennial rival Lionel Messi of Inter Miami swept the Ballon d’Or and FIFA Player of the Year. He was awarded the Ballon d’Or and the FIFA Player of the Year eight times each.
“This does not mean that Messi is not qualified to win the award, or that Erling Holan (Manchester City) and Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) are not qualified to win the award,” Ronaldo said. “There are numbers. Numbers do not lie. We have to consider the entire season. The numbers are facts. Given what happened with the Manchester United and Portugal national teams, they may exclude me. But the fact is that I scored 54 goals.”
Ronaldo has scored 54 goals for his club and national team in 2023. He has scored the most goals in the world, beating over Harry Kane (Bayern Munich) with 52 goals, Mbappe with 50 goals.
When Messi won the Ballon d’Or in October last year, there was no disagreement. This is because he won the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. However, as he was named the FIFA Player of the Year on last 16th, controversy arose that it was a popular vote. This is because votes were cast based on performances from the end of the Qatar World Cup (December 19, 2022) to August 20 last year.
Ronaldo said, “My body and mind are healthy, and as long as I enjoy playing soccer, I will continue to play. I feel good right now, and I feel a sense of accomplishment not only for the national team but also for the club. I am doing what I like to do, including goals and good performance.”
