Cristiano Ronaldo Wins 2013 FIFA Ballon d'Or Award 

Real Madrid and Portugal superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, won the 2013 Ballon d'Or at Kongresshaus, Zurich, Switzerland today after finishing second in FIFA's Ballon d'Or competition three of the past four years.

"First of all I have to say a great thanks to all of my team-mates with the club and the national team. Without all of their efforts this would not have been possible. I am very happy, it is very difficult to win this award," said Ronaldo. "Everybody that has been involved with me on a personal level I have to thank. My wife, my friends, my son. It is a tremendously emotional moment. All I can say is thank you to everybody that has been involved."

"Being the winner made my happy, I felt very proud. To win such an award requires a lot of work. I hope to come back next year to win the third Ballon d'Or of my career," said an emotional Ronaldo.

"There are no words to describe this moment," continued the twenty-eight year old. "I want to thank all my colleagues and companions at Real Madrid, in the Portuguese team and my family who are here with me."

Ronaldo won the annual award given to the world's best player for the second time in his career. CR7 was recognized as the world's best player in 2008 as well, when he was with Manchester United.

Ronaldo-scored 66 goals in 56 appearances for both Real Madrid and Portugal.

Lionel Messi had been the recipient of the award in each of the past four seasons, and he was again a finalist this year along with 2012-13 treble-winner Franck Ribery.

CR7 Museum Opens

Ronaldo has been shortlisted for the prestigious accolade along with Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery and Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

The gala takes place on January 13 in Zurich.

Reportedly CR7 and Real Madrid reacted angrily to disparaging remarks Fifa president Sepp Blatter made about him during a speech at the Oxford Union Society.

When asked about his decision, Ronaldo replied, “There are still several days for that, we’re talking about it and we’ll see what happens.

"I hope to win many more trophies but we’re still looking at it with the club.”

Ronaldo was attending the opening of a museur created in his honor in his native Madeira.

The ace was questioned regarding the draw for Portugal at next year's World Cup in Brazil.

“We’ve been drawn in a difficult group," the 28-year-old conceded. "It’s competitive, but I’m confident that we can do well.

"We just have to get through the first round and then we’ll see what happens.”
