Real Madrid chief Butragueno: Give Ronaldo Ballon d'Or

Real Madrid chief Emilio Butragueno would like to see Cristiano Ronaldo win the Ballon d'Or.

Real coach Jose Mourinho has already declared he believes Ronaldo deserves the gong.

"We would like it to be a Madrid player. The coach has opted for Cristiano, a player who has my admiration, not only for performance but for his attitude. He works the same in training and every minute in games. He always gives the maximum.

"I have been a forward and admire him. His numbers are devastating. He gets more than one goal per game. No player in history has those numbers after playing so many games. He'll catch me soon, next week."

Butragueno has a Liga record of 123 goals against Ronaldo's 121.
