Cristiano Ronaldo: ‘I’m the best player in history
Ronaldo declares himself as best player in the history
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has declared himself as the “best player in history” after winning his fifth Ballon d’Or on Thursday.
Ronaldo, who picked up the award for the second year in a row to equal the record of Barcelona star Lionel Messi, said he does not believe any player is better than him.
Speaking to France Football after his win.
“I’ve never seen anyone better than me. I have always thought that. No footballer can do the things I can.
“There’s no player more complete than me. I play well with both feet, I’m quick, powerful, good with the head, I score goals, I make assists. There are guys who prefer Neymar or Messi. But I tell you: there’s no one more complete than me.

“No one has won as many individual trophies as me. And I’m not speaking just of the Ballon d’Or. That says something, doesn’t it?
“It’s not just a result of the work I do in the gym, like some people think. It’s the sum of many things. Legends like Floyd Mayweather [Jr.] and LeBron James don’t get to their perfect level by chance. Many factors coincide. To be at the top and to stay there, you have to have more talent than the others.”
