Portuguese forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to an Instagram post that suggested Lionel Messi stole the Ballon d’Or Award.
The Argentinian picked up a record breaking seventh award earlier in the week, taking him two clear of the Portuguese, who finished in a lowly sixth position in the voting.
According to an unverified report by sports outlet caughtoffside, an Instagram user “cr7.o_lendario” wrote a lengthy post which essentially said that Ronaldo deserved the award and winner, Messi, stole it.
Then, Cristiano Ronaldo commented “facts” under the post saying Messi robbed the Ballon d’Or and ghosted in big games.
Underneath in the comments section, Ronaldo is alleged to have written ‘Factos’ (facts) in support of the post.
It appears that the battle between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is still raging on, and this time it’s the Ballon d’Or that seems to be a thorny issue for the Portuguese.
