Cristiano Ronaldo Expresses Doubts Over Credibility of Football Awards Following Messi’s FIFA Best Win

Cristiano Ronaldo Casts Doubt on Credibility of Football Awards Post Messi’s FIFA Best Win

In a candid revelation, football icon Cristiano Ronaldo has expressed skepticism about the credibility of individual football awards, particularly in the aftermath of Lionel Messi’s controversial FIFA Best win.

Messi’s Surprising FIFA Best Victory

The recent FIFA Best prize awarded to Lionel Messi raised eyebrows, especially considering the exceptional performance of Treble-winning Erling Haaland.

Messi’s triumph in the Ballon d’Or, following his World Cup success, added to the scrutiny as FIFA’s prize covered a period excluding the World Cup.

Ronaldo’s Perspective at Globe Soccer Awards

Speaking after securing three prizes at the Globe Soccer Awards, Ronaldo hinted at his belief that Messi might not have been a deserving winner of the FIFA Best award.

“Awards Are Losing Credibility,” Says Ronaldo

Ronaldo stated, “I think that, in a way, these awards are losing credibility. We have to analyze the entire season.

It’s not to say that Messi didn’t deserve it, or Haaland or even Mbappe. I simply no longer believe in these awards.”

Ronaldo Emphasizes Facts and Numbers

Underscoring the importance of facts and numbers, Ronaldo asserted, “And it’s not because I won at Globe Soccer. But there are facts, there are numbers. And the numbers don’t deceive.

They can’t take this trophy away from me because it’s a reality. So it makes me even happier because the numbers are facts.”

Future Awards Unlikely for Ronaldo

Acknowledging his current playing status in Saudi Arabia, Ronaldo expressed the likelihood of not being in contention for major awards in the future.

He emphasized prioritizing his club and national team, stating, “The awards come after a good season for the club and the national team. I don’t think about it much, honestly.”
