Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has insisted that the Juventus forward is still “the best player in history”, despite his Ballon d’Or defeat.
Ronaldo finished third on the podium, behind Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and Barcelona arch-rival Lionel Messi, who ended up taking home the prize for a record sixth time.
The 34-year-old did not attend the ceremony in Paris to crown Messi, and Mendes made it clear he disagreed with France Football over who won the Ballon d’Or.
