Cristiano Ronaldo makes headline yet again, this time for the wrong reason? Be the judge

As always, Cristiano Ronaldo is always having to prove his doubters wrong.

The Real Madrid superstar is one of the greatest players football has ever seen and has the stats and trophies to prove it.

But, there are always football fans waiting to criticise him for every bad pass or missed chance - even Madrid supporters themselves.

But those ‘anti-Ronaldo fans’ didn’t see any reason to criticise him during Real Madrid’s 4-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League final, well obviously they wouldn't.

Ronaldo was at his prolific best, scoring twice as Los Blancos won their second consecutive Champions League title.

That trophy will go with his La Liga title in what has been an incredible campaign for him and Madrid.

And winning both the league and Champions League, scoring 42 goals in the process, has put him clear in the running for the 2017 Ballon d’Or and the FIFA World played of the Year award.

In fact, he’s now rated highly to win the accolades with second favourite, Lionel Messi, being considered this time a definite runner-up.

In other words, Ronaldo will pick up his fifth Ballon d’Or next January and draw level with Messi’s record.

And it seems that Ronaldo is only too aware of that.

During Madrid’s Champions League celebrations back at the Bernabeu, everyone was in a party mood.

And when Cristiano took over the microphone - sporting his new haircut - the supporters started signing: “Cristiano, Ballon d'Or.”

Ronaldo initially ignored them, crying “Siiiiiiiiiiii” - his now famous catchphrase.

But then he started screaming “Cristiano, Ballon d’Or” to which all of his Madrid teammates joined.

It certainly got quite the reaction on social media, with many very surprised by his decision to relish in the individual glory when his side have just won the Champions League.

And a video also emerged of Messi winning the treble and dedicating the success to the fans, compared to Ronaldo singing about his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or.

Well, why always you Ronaldo?
