Cristiano Ronaldo says he is the “best player in history” after winning his fifth Ballon d’Or on Thursday, Skysports reports.
The Real Madrid forward scooped the award, which is organised by magazine France Football, for the fifth time to tie level with Lionel Messi’s tally.
Ronaldo, who helped his side win the Champions League and La Liga last season, also won the best male player prize at the 2017 Best FIFA Football Awards in October, and believes he is now the greatest to have played the game.
“I respect everyone’s preferences, but I’ve never seen anyone better than me. I have always thought about that. No footballer can do the things I can. There’s no player more complete than me.
