In particular, Ronaldo became the top scorer in men’s international soccer this year after breaking Ali Daei’s record. As such, Sir Alex Ferguson firmly believes that the Manchester United striker deserves to win the Ballon d’Or in 2021.
Following the announcement of the list of 30 candidates for this year’s Ballon d’Or, Sir Alex Ferguson was cited by MARK:
“Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win the Ballon d’Or. This year he has broken record after record.”
Previously, Sir Alex Ferguson played a crucial role in Cristiano Ronaldo to secure a successful return to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window. The former Manchester United manager is believed to have pulled the strings from behind to convince the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to return to familiar surroundings.
Since returning to the club, Ronaldo has been excellent for the Red Devils. The 36-year-old has scored five goals in six appearances for the club in all competitions. He also scored a hat-trick during the international break when Portugal faced Luxembourg in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Ronaldo won his first Ballon d’Or while playing with Sir Alex Ferguson
Without a doubt, Sir Alex Ferguson deserves all the credit for caring for a young Ronaldo during his formative years. The Portuguese talent joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in 2003 before making a name for himself in England and Europe.
Sir Alex Ferguson benefited greatly from having a generational talent like Ronaldo on his team. The Red Devils were rampant and ended up winning three Premier League and Champions League titles with Ronaldo on their side.
Building on the success of an excellent campaign with Manchester United, Ronaldo won his first Ballon d’Or in 2008. Although he left the club for Real Madrid in 2009, it really stands out as a turning point in his career. Since then, Ronaldo has added four more Ballon d’Or awards to his trophy cabinet.
However, speaking exclusively of the 2021 edition of the Ballon d’Or, Ronaldo only has an external chance of winning it. Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho are seen as leading the way in the race for the award.
