Atletico Madrid player Filipe Luis does not believe that Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win the Ballon d’Or this year.
Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or on four different occasions and is the clear favorite to win the individual owner once again this year after a great season with Real Madrid as they won both the UEFA Champions League and La Liga title.
However, Felipe Luis believes there are other players who did better than Ronaldo in the last one year. Who failed to take the Portuguese team to success at the Confederations Cup in Russia.
“The winner of the Ballon d’Or is a subjective issue” he revealed to Panenka. “for me Ronaldo had not done enough to win because he performed in the last two months of the season.”
He also revealed his admiration for Barcelona striker Lionel Messi who he said was a model player.
Messi Is Humble and Never Complains
“I respect Messi because he is someone who never complains in games that I have played with him and I have never asked for his jersey even though I respect him. I aim to win and not admire Messi.”
Filipe’s teammate at Atletico Madrid Antoine Griezmann was the third best player in 2016.
