Kriralok Desk: The prestigious Ballon d’Or was announced on Monday (November 29). PSG’s Argentine star Lionel Messi has won the 2021 Ballon d’Or. Messi won the Ballon d’Or for the seventh time in his career.
Three days before the announcement of the winner of the Ballon d’Or, Pascal Ferrero, an editor of the French magazine Ballon Authority, became controversial. He said on social media that Ronaldo’s only goal is to retire after winning the Ballon d’Or more than Messi. I’m telling everyone about this because he told me.
Ronaldo has strongly protested Pascal’s remarks, editor-in-chief of France Football magazine. The Portuguese superstar said he did not say anything to Pascal related to this things.
In protest, Ronaldo wrote on his socials that, ” Today’s outcome explains why Pascal Ferré’s statements in the last week, saying that I confided to him that I had the sole ambition to end my career with more Golden Balls than Lionel Messi.Pascal Ferré lied, used my name to promote himself and to promote the post he works for. It is unacceptable that the responsible for awarding such a prestigious award should lie like this, in absolute disrespect for someone who has always respected France Football and the Golden Ball. And lied again today justifying my absence from the Gala with an alleged quarantine that has no reason to be.I always wish congratulations to those who win, within sports and fair play that have guided my career from the beginning, and I do so because I’m never against anyone. I always win for myself and the clubs I represent, I win for myself and those who want me well. I don’t win against anyone.
The greatest ambition of my career is to win national and international titles for the clubs I represent and for my country’s Selection. The greatest ambition of my career is to be a good role model for all those who are or wish to be professional footballers. The greatest ambition of my career is to leave my name written in the golden letters in the history of world football.
I end by saying that my focus is already on the upcoming Manchester United game and everything that we can still conquer this season along with my mates and our supporters. The rest? The rest is just the rest… “
Ronaldo did not attend the 2021 Ballon d’Or awards ceremony. “Ronaldo didn’t attend the ceremony because he was in quarantine,” Pascal said. ‘
Ronaldo also dismissed Pascal’s remarks, saying “Pascal spoke of quarantine behind my absence at the Ballon d’Or, which doesn’t have any kind of existence.”
After all these occurrences, will Ronaldo care about Ballon d’Or anymore. Maybe not! Maybe that’s what he has hinted through his lines in social media!
