Real Madrid boss Mourinho: Ronaldo deserves second Ballon d'Or

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says Cristiano Ronaldo deserves a second Ballon d'Or for his efforts this season.

Ronaldo already has one Ballon d'Or thanks to his time with Manchester United.

Mourinho told Portuguese TV station SIC: "Cristiano has to win the Ballon d'Or, not because he has been the top goalscorer, he was that already last season, but because his goals have delivered a title.

"Messi scored 50 goals that weren't worth anything, in the same way that Cristiano scored 42 last season that didn't stand for anything.

"He hasn't been able to win the Pichichi and I believe he should be compensated with the Ballon d'Or."
