Here is what Ronaldo said about France Football!

With the Golden Ball ceremony approaching, France Football has just published an interview with Cristiano Ronaldo where a range of topics have been touched upon.

The Portuguese star of Juventus has said, among other things, that the rivalry with Lionel Messi has made him a better footballer. Both players have won 5 Golden Balls and are considered two of the best in football history. Even though they are already respectively 34 and 32 years old their shape continues to be excellent and they are not missing on the podiums of big individual awards.

Ronaldo spent 9 years alone Real Madrid before moving to Juventus in the summer of 2018 and throughout those years most football opinionists expressed that the close rivalry they had with each other pushed them to improve more and more. Ronaldo himself accepted this hypothesis, saying:

"A lot of people have said that we grew up as footballers from each other and that being together in Spain has made us better."

"It simply came to our notice then. I have felt his presence more during my time in Madrid than when I was in Manchester. It has been a healthy rivalry. We were the symbols of our clubs. ”

"It's always nice to hear people talk well about you. "I am pleased to say that I was the best or a fantastic footballer."

However, the media have not always been positive towards him and Ronaldo responded to this fact as follows:

"Today, I hear everything that is said about me, but when everything is over, at the end of my career, I will not be interested because I will break away from all this."

Ronaldo is well known for his dedication to training and for his relentless work off the field which has helped him become one of the best in history.

"Talent is needed first, otherwise you can not reach very high," he said.

"However, talent is useless if you do not work hard. "I would never have reached the level I am today without the culture of working hard every day."

Ronaldo reached the figure of 700 career goals in the 2-1 loss of Portugal against Ukraine, 450 of which he has scored during his fantastic period at Real Madrid.

Asked who he would choose as his favorite goal, the 34-year-old chose the acrobatic goal scored for Real Madrid in the match against his current club, Juventus, in the quarterfinals of the 2017-18 Champions League.

"Achieving 700 goals makes me proud, it is a total of impressive goals that few footballers have achieved"

"If I had to choose a favorite goal, I would choose it against Juventus, because it was the kind of goal I had been trying to score for years."


The Portuguese is one of the contenders for winning the Golden Ball this year after the first very successful season with Juventus and winning the League of Nations with Portugal.

The start of the season has been positive again for him with goals scored for both the club and the national team. Success in the Italian championship, Champions League and Euro 2020 will be the goals of Juventus and Portugal this season and with Ronaldo in the team everything is possible.
