Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, on Sunday night said he will not speak on the 2019 Ballon d' Or, after his side defeated Netherlands 1-0 in the UEFA Nations League final.
The 34-year-old is widely expected to compete with Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk and Barcelona's Lionel Messi for this year's Europe top individual award.
Daily Star reports that in a footage, the Juventus superstar was asked by one reporter during his post-match press conference to give his view on who will win the 2019 Ballon d' Or.
But the former Real Madrid star quickly walked away, saying: "No, I will not speak about the Ballon d'Or."
However, Ronaldo's comment has since generated a lot of comments on social media.
"He doesn't want to talk about it because he won't win it," one supporter said.
Another fan commented: "Not the favourite to win it this year."
While a third added: "Three words: Virgil van Dijk."
