“It’s not easy to like me. You either like me or you don’t. There’s no such thing as inbetween. Not with me…because I am who I am. I don’t care what people say. I’m not the person to change for other people. As I said: I am who I am, and I’ll stay that way.”

"I think it’s not the most important thing in a career… It’s important for many players; I understand that, but it’s just an individual trophy. I think there are more important things than that — to [have] a fantastic career, to win things for the club… It’s just one more trophy. It’s good, but it’s not the end of the world if a player doesn’t win because I consider many, many good players that deserve to win the Golden Ball, and they never win. It’s just a trophy." — Cristiano Ronaldo
