Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has insisted he is not consumed about adding to his five Ballon d’Or awards.
Ronaldo has netted 27 goals in all competitions this season, bouncing back from early-season struggles to score eight in Madrid’s last four games.
Last year, the Portugal captain said he wanted to win seven Ballons d’Or, but in an interview with Brazilian Youtube channel Desimpedidos, he said he would be content to finish with five.
“I never dreamt of winning five Ballons d’Or.
“But if my career had to end now, I would do so very happily. I’ve won everything. Of course I would be delighted to win one two or three more Ballons d’Or but if I don’t, I’ve already won five.
“It’s obviously my ambition and I still have the capacity to do so and the strength to fight to be the best in the world although others believe the contrary. I have confidence in myself. But it all depends on the trophies that we win this season, on how I finish [the campaign] and on the World Cup,” Ronaldo said.
