Cristiano Ronaldo his extended his outstanding record over his fiercest rival Lionel Messi as he becomes the first player to win the best player in England, Spain and Italy.
The Juventus forward failed to attend the 2019 Ballon D’Or ceremony as Messi scooped a record sixth award and now one above Ronaldo.
But that did not in any way change Ronaldo setting another record similar to the one he created as the first player to win the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A titles.
It now means Ronaldo has added another feather in his cap after helping Juventus win their fifth eighth Scuttedo and the Super Cup, becoming the league’s top scorer.
Messi has played all his career in Barcelona and it is an unachievable task for the Argentine to match Ronaldo’s record in that area.
