Cristiano Ronaldo publicly supports the claims that Lionel Messi ‘stole’ the Golden Ball


Cristiano Ronaldo finished sixth in the 2021 Golden Ball.

The Portuguese striker was ranked out of the top three for the first time since 2010.

Lionel Messi, Ronaldo’s lifelong rival, won his seventh trophy at Monday’s ceremony.

The Argentine now has two Golden Balls more than Ronaldo and it seems the 36-year-old is not happy with the result of this year’s biggest individual award.

A Ronaldo fan, Instagram user cr7.o_lendario, posted a joke after the ceremony.

The fan claimed that Messi did not deserve to win and that Ronaldo has had a better year.


Ronaldo saw the post and commented: “Facts”.

After listing all of Ronaldo’s achievements in 2021, fans wrote: “They still put him in 6th place… Do you really think five players did more than him a year? Never.

It seems that Ronaldo was not happy with the result, he did not even attend that ceremony
