Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo won his fifth Ballon d’Or last December, but said he’s not desperate to win any additional awards. The Portuguese international had a slow start this season and then caught fire at the beginning of the new year, netting 12 goals in nine appearances in all competitions.
“I never dreamed I would win five Ballon d’Or awards. If I had to finish my career now I would do so super happy. I have won everything,” Ronaldo told Brazilian YouTube channel Central Desimpedidos.
“If I win another one, two or three Ballon d’Ors then I will be delighted but if not I already won five.”
“I achieved everything I dreamed of in football. I really think I have achieved so many nice things that I don’t have any more dreams.”
“But if you ask me if I want to keep winning of course I do. Obviously, I would love to win the World Cup. But if my career ended now I would be very proud. I never thought my career was going to be so nice.”
