Now, the fact is that Cristiano Ronaldo is a brilliant player. His qualities are unquestionable and he will surely make a clean sweep of every major individual award in the next few weeks.

However, trumpeting about being spectacularly brilliant is not something that gentlemen do, to be honest. Even if it’s true. Asked about who he thought was the best player in the world, our Ronaldo answered modestly.

“I`m the first, the second and the third.

“But there are also good candidates such as Kaka, Messi and Torres. I think I did everything possible to win the prize and I want to carry on the same way.

“My objective is to win every title possible in the future.”


He went on to add how much it means to him that Pele lavished praise on him which is also a little embarassing because though Pele was obviously one of the most brilliant players of all time, he tends to spout a lot of rubbish these days. Not quite on the Blatter scale but he’s not the best source of balanced opinion. Even though he’s got it right this time.
