Ronaldo under fire after commenting "Facts" to a post by a fan that Messi stole his seventh Ballon d'Or title

Manchester United Forward Cristiano Ronaldo has backed claims that Lionel Messi stole the Ballon d'Or from him and Robert Lewandowski. 

PSG star Messi won his seventh Ballon d'Or on Monday night November 29, beating Bayern Munich striker Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo who is his closet rival

Ronaldo who is a five time winner of the title commented on a post by a fan who was trolling Messi for winning the Ballon d'Or.

In the Instagram post, Ronaldo commented "Factos" which in English means "Facts" after the said fan wrote that Ronaldo deserved the Ballon d'Or title other than Messi.

The post read

''Who saw, saw. Anyone who is smart enough knows who the real deserving ones are. Receiving awards without earning it is false happiness, without pride.' 

'43 goals in the year, 6 goals in 5 games in this Champions League, all decisive and a guy who, regardless of age, continues to work miracles and is the guy who most impresses the world most often. 

'They still put the guy in 6th… Do you really think that 5 guys did more than him in the year? Never.

'He could fight for this award calmly and the fight would be good with Lewandowski who in individual numbers was incredible and Bayern had a better season than Juventus and has been having a calmer season than United, but at the national selection level for example, Cristiano was much better.

And who does the prize go to? For Messi, who only won the Copa del Rey by Barcelona, ??he hasn't scored a goal against Real Madrid since when Cristiano left, disappeared in the big games of the season, won the Copa America that was supposed to be every 4 years and do practically every year. 

'He didn't score in the final or in the semifinal. And he's been having a weak season with PSG individually.

'For Cristiano to win this prize he has to be 300% unquestionable. It's no use scoring the most beautiful bike of the year, being champion of everything by club, top scorer of everything and scoring a hat-trick in the World Cup, they still provide a way to take his prize.

'With Messi, it's the other way around. He can do a low-key season, way below, they'll always find a way to favour him and give him the prize.'

Ronaldo has since been under fire for the comment.
