RONALDO NOT BOTHERED
Cristiano Ronaldo isn't interested in his much-publicised rivalry with Lionel Messi, or the Ballon D'Or for that matter. All he wants is to win trophies!
Ronny was overlooked for the World Player of the Year award in favour of Argentinean Messi, but insists that he has more important things to think about, and that he treats Messi as just any other player.
"I don't have an obsession or a direct rivalry with Messi," Ronaldo told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "I feel the same way about other players. But, one thing is certain: I want to be the best of all footballers.
"I don't envy Messi at all. My priority is to win La Liga and the Champions League with Real Madrid, not Ballon d'Or awards."
