FOOTBALL- Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has upped his bid for the Ballon d’Or 2019 after winning the UEFA Nations League tournament with Italian giant Juventus.
In a recent interview, Ronaldo said, “I’ve won three competitions, I’ve been fine, as always. What else can I do? Do I deserve the Golden Ball? I do not know. I leave that to you, who are the ones who evaluate my performance. I’m not going to value myself.”
Ronaldo joined Juventus in 2018/19 season and has won the Italian Supercup, the Serie A and the UEFA Nations Cup.
Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk and Barcelona legend Lionel Messi are the other two favourites for the top award.
