Valverde jokes with Ronaldo for the Ballon d’Or

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has said that you do not need titles to be the best player.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is the main favorite to win the Golden Ball for the second consecutive time and the fifth time in his career.

Portugal with individual statistics is not the best, but has won almost all the possible titles with Real Madrid.

But Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has said that it is not needed to win titles to be the best because everyone knows who the best player is.

“Messi and the Ballon d’Or? We all know who is the best player in the world and no matter who wins the Ballon d’Or, it does not change anything. You do not need titles to be the best. We all know who is the best, “Valverde said during the media conference, ahead of tomorrow’s match against Olympiacos in the Champions League.
