Sortly after Real Madrid won a historic consecutive Champions League titles and a drought-ending La Liga crown, Cristiano Ronaldo has who never made a secret of his love for individual honours, wasted no time making his case for the Ballon d’Or.
The Superstar netted twice as Los Blancos beat Juventus 4-1 in the Champions League final Saturday for a record-extending 12th European crown, leading to wild scenes back in the Spanish capital, Goal writes.
And as the team arrived back home at the Santiago Bernabeu, the Portuguese took centre stage as9 he sung about another Ballon d’Or coming his way to draw him level with Barcelona foe and five-time winner Lionel Messi.
With the crowd already whipped into a frenzy, the 32-year-old attacker — who finished the season with 42 goals in all competitions and as the Champions League’s top scorer — couldn’t resist singing, “Cristiano, Ballon d’Or” and of course, the fans joined in.
Led by captain Sergio Ramos and coach Zinedine Zidane — Ronaldo and the reigning European champions returned home to a sea of Madrid fans in the Spanish capital.
