Mateo Kovacic backs Cristiano Ronaldo for Ballon d'Or award

Mateo Kovacic backs Cristiano Ronaldo for Ballon d'Or award

However, the fact that Ronaldo and Real took home the lion's share of the key silverware in 2017, and Messi's Barcelona largely came off second best, means it is the Portuguese star who is likely to be crowned Ballon d'Or victor again this year.

Ronaldo, 32, is hotly tipped to take home his fifth gong and draw level with Barcelona rival Lionel Messi.

Mateo Kovacic claims that Cristiano Ronaldo is deserving of a record-equalling fifth Ballon d'Or at this week's ceremony, as he remains "the best player in the world".

Pictures shared on Instagram show the words "Quinto Triumfo", or "fifth triumph" inscribed on the boots.

Ronaldo has also announced himself that he is releasing Air Force 1 CR7 trainers and the colour scheme of white and gold matches the new boots.

The presentation of the Ballon d'Or is set to resemble the scenario of the yearly French Open tennis winners' celebrations next to the France capital famous monument.

"He is the leading goalscorer in our history".

Despite Ronnie preparing to take all the plaudits, Messi's Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde insists prizes do not concern him.

'The Golden Shoe, the Ballon d'Or...

He said: "I don't value any prize at all".

"In truth, I am far more interested in team titles", he explained during Wednesday's interview with TyC Sports. "I'd rather not to evaluate any of them".

Ronaldo surpassed Jimmy Greaves as the all-time top scorer in the top five European leagues on May 17, and by netting against Juve, became the second player after Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano to score in three different Champions League finals.
