Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo has been criticized by a section of football viewers for his “lack of sportsmanship” after he agreed with a fan who claimed on Instagram that Lionel Messi had robbed the Ballon d’Or from him and Robert Lewandowski.

In a lengthy post on his Instagram page, the fan, who is followed by Ronaldo himself, had written, “Anyone who is smart enough knows who the real deserving ones are. Receiving awards without earning it is false happiness, without pride. He (Ronaldo) could fight for this award calmly and the fight would be good with Lewandowski who in individual numbers was incredible and Bayern had a better season than Juventus and has been having a calmer season than United, but at the national selection level for example, Cristiano was much better.”

Accusing Messi of robbing the award, the fan further added, “And who does the prize go to? For Messi, who only won the Copa del Rey by Barcelona, he hasn’t scored a goal against Real Madrid since when Cristiano left, disappeared in the big games of the season, won the Copa America that was supposed to be every 4 years and do practically every year. He didn’t score in the final or in the semifinal. And he’s been having a weak season with PSG individually.”

The user also claimed that Messi has always been favoured over Ronaldo, even when he did not perform well. “For Cristiano to win this prize he has to be 300% unquestionable. It’s no use scoring the most beautiful bike of the year, being champion of everything by club, top scorer of everything and scoring a hat-trick in the World Cup, they still provide a way to take his prize. With Messi, it’s the other way round. He can do a low-key season, way below, they’ll always find a way to favour him and give him the prize,” he mentioned.

Ronaldo not only liked the post, but commented “Facts” underneath it from his official Instagram page. Lionel Messi on Monday beat Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski and Chelsea midfielder Jorginho to win the prestigious Ballon d’Or award for the seventh time.
