Super agent Mendes declares to media: You all know Ronaldo's the best!

Super agent Jorge Mendes says Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo remains the best in the world.

Ronaldo finished third in tonight's Ballon d'Or count, won by Barcelona captain Lionel Messi.

The 34-year-old did not attend the ceremony in Paris to crown Messi, and Mendes made it clear he disagreed with France Football over who won the Ballon d'Or.

“Cristiano is the best player in history, and you know it!" he told reporters at the Gran Gala del Calcio, which is recognising the best players of last season in Italian football.

Instead, the No 7 will receive the award for Serie A MVP of 2018-19 thanks to his 21-goal haul and Scudetto success.
