Atletico Madrid defender Felipe Luis has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo is not worthy of winning the Ballon d’Or again this year.
Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo has won the coveted prize on four occasions previously, including in 2016, and is favourite to win after helping Los Blancos to the Champions League and Spanish titles in 2016-17.
But Brazilian left-back Felipe Luis has believes there are more consistent candidates than the Portuguese.
“The Ballon d’Or is a subjective matter,” Luis told Panenka. “Cristiano hasn’t done anything until the last two months.”
“I admire Messi, he’s never complained to me in any game we played but I’ve also never asked him for his jersey and never would. I came to win, not to say I played against Messi,”he said.
Filipe’s Atletico Madrid team-mate Antoine Griezmann came third in the 2016 edition, placing behind the Portuguese and the Argentine.
