Ronaldo would not be lured into commenting or agreeing with Wenger’s views that the Ballon d’Or promotes selfishness, but he respects his views.
Wenger was quoted as saying he has seen the ballon d’or destroy players who were aiming for the prestigious award.
But, Ronaldo who has won the last two editions and has four in total, would not be drawn into making a comment on the notion.
Indeed, when asked about Wenger’s comments by the Evening Standard, the Portugal international replied: “[Those are his] opinions. I respect opinions but that’s it.”
Wenger had aired his views before Sunday’s derby clash with Tottenham at the Emirates.
“I’m against the Ballon d’Or,” the Frenchman stated.
“I’m against all these things.
“I’ve seen careers destroyed because the players are too much obsessed to get individual rewards.
“I feel sometimes it encourages selfishness and people inside the game to go too much for their own sake when some partners are in a better position.
“Even the agents sometimes motivate the players to get individual rewards because they are more valuable on the market after.
“Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m against it.”
