Cristiano Ronaldo wins 2013 Ballon d’Or, crowned world’s best player

Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the winner of the 2013 Ballon d’Or as the world’s best soccer player.

The Real Madrid winger ousted Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery to win the award. It was Ronaldo’s second time winning the prestigious award, previously made the recipient in 2008 following his 31 goal season in the Premier League with Manchester United.

Ronaldo, who placed second in Ballon d’Or voting in 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2012, won this year’s award after scoring a sensational 55 goals for Real Madrid. During that stint he nabbed five hat-tricks in club play – against Getafe, Galatasaray and Real Sociedad – and two on the international stage for Portugal – against Northern Ireland and against Sweden in the second leg of Portugal’s World Cup playoff ,ensuring his country’s place in Brazil.

Yes, probably he is.

Messi is a gifted player, Ronaldo worked hard to get where he is and I value determination/hard work over natural talent any day.

Apart from watching him play, I don't know much about him.

What did Messi do or say recently for you to consider him "brainless"?

He ain't done nothing wrong.
Messi is a nice person, maybe i misjudge him,
but i concluded this watching and reading his interwievs.
Typical football player - if you ask him/them something unrelated to football,
response is a big silence.

People can try and argue it, but they'd be wrong. This season, he's better than Messi. His stats are beyond amazing. We're not even half way through the season yet and Ronaldo has already scored 32 goals for club and country this season, including five hat-tricks. Absolutely nuts. At this rate he'll be pushing for well over 60 goals come the end of the season - if he can keep it up that is.
