Sports Desk – PL star Tim Cahill feels that Ronaldo has much contributed his season for Serie A giants Juventus that he can be the Ballon d’Or 2019 winner as he deserves it more than Messi.
The Everton Legend has a meeting with a Qatari sports channel Al Kass in which the host asked him some set of questions including his own career & the players and managers he played under.
Such one question asked to him was about the Ballon d’or 2019 and who deserves it this season.
Cahill, who made 226 appearances in PL, surprisingly picked Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi.
He said – “The reason why I say Ronaldo, I know people won’t agree, is because of what he’s done in Juventus”.
“He left Real Madrid, went there (to Juventus) and had such a massive impact on another league. I’ve never seen another player do it…at Man United, Madrid for so many years.
“And I know he didn’t win the Champions League but he has such an impact in any club. If you can take players and put them somewhere at his age… I know people won’t agree, I just appreciate his professionalism,” he added.
Both the legends holds 5 Ballon d’Or each with the Argentine scoring 50 goals and 22 assists in 49 appearances.
