Although Ronaldo’s 46 league goals were not enough to beat Barcelona’s Messi to the title of the league’s top scorer, they steered Madrid to the title.
Mourinho told Portuguese TV station SIC: “Cristiano has to win the Ballon d’Or, not because he has been the top goalscorer, he was that already last season, but because his goals have delivered a title. Messi scored 50 goals that weren’t worth anything, in the same way that Cristiano scored 42 last season that didn’t stand for anything.”
