Real Madrid star Ronaldo has played down the importance of winning the Ballon d'Or.
"The Ballon d'Or is not the most important thing in a footballer's career," Ronaldo told beIN Sport. "There are many more years.
"It is important for many players and I can understand that, but it's just an individual trophy.
"Of course, it would be nice to win but it would not be the end of the world otherwise. Moreover, great players who deserved it have never won it."
