‘He Has Never Deserved The Ballon d’Or More Than This Year’: Jorge Mendes On Ronaldo

Speaking about why Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win the Ballon d’Or this year, his agent Jorge Mendes told France Football: “The numbers do the talking and they should be enough.

“He scored 115 goals for Portugal, becoming the world record holder with the national teams. He is the best scorer in the history of football.

“It is a decisive thing and means he must win the trophy because he continues to prove that he is the best player in history.

“Do not forget that Cristiano was the top scorer in Serie A, he was the top scorer in the last European championships, he has the record for the most goals in the Champions League and is the only player to have won everything in three different and very competitive countries like Italy, Spain, and England.

“All of this together makes him absolutely unique. From my point of view, the Golden Ball has only one name: Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s never deserved it more than this year.”
