Cristiano Ronaldo has finally been acknowledged as the World Footballer of the Year with him being awarded the FIFA Ballon d'Or award for 2013. This award has been a long time coming for Cristiano Ronaldo as he has always been considered one of the top players in the world but never been officially designated the best player but that is no longer a question. His performance as a striker in 2013 was outstanding as he scored an incredible 66 goals in 56 games. Cristiano Ronaldo is living a life that befits a superstar sportsman as he not only is considered the best player in the world but he also has the attention of one of the most beautiful women in the world and will be playing on the sporting world's biggest stage in 2014.
The life that Cristiano Ronaldo is living is one that many young men dream about and is what many a great movie can be made. Cristiano Ronaldo has become a footballer legend throughout the world and he still has yet to turn thirty years old. His girlfriend, Irinia Shayk, is a woman who is at the height of her career as a model, best known as a cover model for the prestigious North American magazine publication, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Magazine. He led the Portuguese National Football team to 2014 World Cup qualification and his club team is competing for various club championships.
The one thing that needs to happen for Cristiano Ronaldo in the future is to have a movie made about his life that also shows the hard work that it took for him to achieve his success. As his past teammate Rio Ferdinand disclosed in an open letter to his teammate, the success of Cristiano Ronaldo is the result of an incredible amount of discipline and hard work and that is why he is such a great player.
In 2014 the next chapter of the Cristiano Ronaldo book has yet to be written and while the title of this year will be unknown the one thing that cannot be denied is that one of the few titles that should be considered to describe 2013 for Cristiano Ronaldo is "World Footballer of the Year". The question for many footballers is whether he can now be considered one of the greatest footballers of all time.
