Soccer sensation Cristiano Ronaldo today said that he is not worried to win the individual awards but hopes that he gets seven Ballon d’Or awards to go with seven children.
Ronaldo became a father for the fourth time earlier this week when his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, gave birth to a daughter in Madrid.
He’s also the favourite to win a fifth Ballon d’Or next month, and he says he has his sights set on more, even as family has taken on a greater importance in recent years.
Real Madrid’s No. 7 said of the Ballon d’Or: “I’m not worried about it any more. I’m 32, nearly 33. My world isn’t only about football. There are other important things.
“With the Ballon d’Or, I know the panel is still voting. I’m confident. I’m confident of winning, not worried.
“If you ask me if I want to win it, I’ll obviously tell you yes. I know what a fifth Ballon d’Or would mean for posterity.
“I want seven children and as many Ballons d’Or. As long as I play, I’ll have the ambition to win all I can.
