Big and selfish ego, but did Ronaldo congratulate Benzema for the Ballon d’Or?


Karim Benzema wrote that Cristiano Ronaldo did not send messages after his Ballon d’Or triumph.

The Frenchman won the major prize for the first time in his career, setting Real Madrid up for La Liga and the Champions League.

He scored 44 goals in 46 games in all competitions as he beat Sadio Mane and Kevin De Bruyne to the coveted individual award. But Benzema’s former colleague, Ronaldo, has not yet congratulated him on his individual triumph.

Asked if the Golden Ball winner had ever congratulated him on winning the prestigious award, the Frenchman replied: “No, not yet.” Benzema and Ronaldo enjoyed a successful nine-year, trophy-laden spell together as attacking partners at Real.

But almost a month after winning the Ballon d’Or award, the Manchester United player has not contacted his old team-mate.
