Joao Cancelo is full of praise for Juventus teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, declaring ‘If Cristiano doesn’t win the Ballon d’Or this year, it’s just incredible.’
The Portuguese full-back joined Juve this summer along with his compatriot and is still impressed by his work-rate.
“Every day I train with Cristiano Ronaldo and so far he has won five editions of the Ballon d’Or,” Cancelo told Sky Sport Italia.
“If Cristiano doesn’t win it this year, it’s just incredible. He is the best of them all and last season he was more decisive than any other player.
“The Ballon d’Or can’t just be decided by the World Cup, because that tournament can only be won by a certain number of select nations. If you are born in France, Germany or Brazil, clearly sooner or later you’re going to win a World Cup. Seeing Portugal win the Euros, that is a huge achievement and very rare.
“Cristiano won the Champions League as an absolute protagonist, scoring 15 goals. When he plays for a team, that team becomes the best there is. The proof is in the latest Clasico result. Barcelona without Lionel Messi win 5-1, Real Madrid without Cristiano Ronaldo lose 5-1. That is the difference.
“I am talking about a player who makes the difference everywhere he goes because he is different to all the others. When he arrived at Juventus, not only did he raise the level of the squad, but also the individual level of his teammates.
“You see, millions can observe what he does during a game, but what he does in training is a spectacle for only a select few to enjoy. Watching the way he works, it makes you want to work harder and do better. He never lets go, even though he’s the best player in the world.
“Juventus have always been a great club, but now with Cristiano, they have been transformed in the eyes of the opposition to favourites for the Champions League.
“Cristiano was born to win and to help his teammates to win.”
