Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo insists he's not obsessed by the Ballon d'Or.

Ronaldo is expected to miss out on the prize for the year.

"I cannot live for an individual award, it would be unfair, the career of a footballer is not marked by the individual trophies, but by the collective. When the decision is known, I may be very happy, I may be sad ... but it is the law of life.

"If you win perfect, if not, patience, life goes on," declared Ronaldo.
