New UEFA Best Player in Europe, Cristiano Ronaldo, has hinted that he believes Lionel Messi didn’t deserve to win the Golden Ball at the World Cup.
The Argentine controversially won the award for the best player in Brazil and Ronaldo seems to disagree with voting by FIFA technical committee.
"Everyone can see, make their own judgements, the people in the world of football are intelligent," Ronaldo said.
"It would be a very interesting question for him. I cannot be honest about it."
"If I said everything that I think, I would be in prison.”
The 29-year-old also explained that for him to perform at the highest level, he must believe inside himself that he is the best player in the world.
“Nobody is better or worse. Everyone does their job and tries to give the best for their team or country. Both of us want to be the best,” he added.
“I believe that in my profession I am the best and I work hard for that. In my head I always think I’m better.”
