The Manchester United star player, Cristiano Ronaldo has blast and accused Pascal Ferre, editor in chief of France Football, for lying against him and saying that he wants more Ballon d’Or awards that Messi.

Ferre made a claim earlier this week that Cristiano Ronaldo would not retire until he wins more Ballon d’Or trophies than Lionel Messi.

According to information gathered, Ferre made this statement in an interview with Marca “Ronaldo has only one ambition and that is to retire with more Ballon d’Or than Messi, I know because he has told me”.

Ronaldo was not present at the 2021 Ballon d’Or ceremony in Paris, which takes place on Monday evening.

This same evening, Ronaldo dismissed the claims via his Instagram page and alleged that Ferre was using him to promote his name and publication.

He wrote;

“Today’s outcome explains why Pascal Ferré’s statements last week, when he said that I confided in him that my only ambition was to finish my career with more Golden Balls than Lionel Messi,”

“Pascal Ferré lied, he used my name to promote himself and to promote the publication he works for. It is unacceptable that the person responsible for awarding such a prestigious prize could lie in this way, in absolute disrespect for someone who has always respected France Football and the Ballon d’Or. And he lied again today when justifying my absence from the Gala with an alleged quarantine that has no reason to exist.”

“I always want to congratulate those who win, within the sportsmanship and fair-play that have guided my career since the beginning, and I do it because I’m never against anyone. I always win for myself and for the clubs I represent, I win for myself and for those who love me. I don’t win against anyone.

“The biggest ambition of my career is to win national and international titles for the clubs I represent and for the national team in my country. The biggest ambition of my career is to be a good example for all those who are or want to be professional footballers. The biggest ambition of my career is to leave my name written in golden letters in the history of world football.

“I will end by saying that my focus is already on Manchester United’s next game and on everything that, together with my team-mates and our fans, we can still achieve this season. The rest? The rest is just the rest…”
