You are a better player when you have better boots on.
It’s a strict rule of play ground football and Cristiano Ronaldo has just taken it to the highest level.
In fact, leaked pictures of Ronaldo’s new boots suggest he may be the best player on the planet this year.
The Real Madrid man is aiming to match Lionel Messi’s tally of five Ballon d’Or trophy.
Having fired Los Blancos to Champions League glory and won La Liga Ronny is a hot favourite to be named best player in the world for a fifth time.
Pictures of Nike’s new Mercurial Superfly V Quinto Triunfo CR7 have dropped a big hint that the Ronaldo family may already be preparing for this year’s gong.
The Ballon d’Or will be announced later today and Ronaldo is probably already rehearsing his winners’ speech.
Nike’s latest boots for CR7 have ‘Quinto Triunfo’ printed on them which translates to fifth triumph.
The white and gold Mercurial’s also have every other year Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or inscribed on them, 2008, 2013, 2014, 2016.
We will have to wait until Thursday afternoon to find out if France Football has won the prize.
But, going by this panel at FF anything could happen.
Good luck, Ronny.
