Ronaldo deserves Ballon d’Or this year more than ever- Mendes

The Portuguese agent is confident the Portugal international should be the Ballon d’Or winner and ‘has never deserved it as much as this year.’

Cristiano Ronaldo

has been named among the 30 best players of the year by France Football. However, notwithstanding winning the Ballon d’Or five times during his career, the former Juventus striker is not among the top candidates to grab it this year.

Chelsea’s

Jorginho

and

Lionel Messi

appear as the favorites to win as they have achieved a lot on the international level.

Messi contributed to the Copa America and Jorginho helped Italy in the Euro 2020. The Italy international has also won the Champions League with Chelsea.

Despite all that,

Jorge Mendes

insists that the Portuguese star should be the best player of the year.

The Ballon d’Or has only one name, Cristiano Ronaldo,”

he told France Football.

“He has never deserved it as much as this year. Top scorer in Serie A and at the Euros. He holds the record for goals in Champions League and is the only one who has won everything in three different countries.”

Ronaldo became Serie A’s Capocannoniere last season and grabbed the Coppa Italia, although Juventus managed to finish among the top four on the table last season.

He is the best scorer in the history of football. It is a decisive thing, it must be so for the trophy, because he continues to prove to be the best player in history,”

Mendes concluded.
