Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri says the fact that someone else (Lionel Messi) has won a Ballon d’Or award more than his player Cristiano Ronaldo is annoying.
Messi and Ronaldo were tied on 5 awards each until the Barcelona captain won a record 6th time in December last year moving ahead of Ronaldo.
Sarri says he wants to help Ronaldo join Messi on six Ballons d’Or this year.
“I would like to help Cristiano win the sixth Ballon d’Or first. It’s really annoying thinking that someone won more than him” He told reporters following Juventus 4-0 win against Udinese in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday night.
“I think about him, and I think helping him, it is my goal and the goal of the team. It is right for him” He said.
The Portuguese forward has started the New Year in brilliant form, scoring 4 goals in 2 appearances, including his first hat-trick for Juve in Serie A.
