Barcelona wizard Lionel Messi recently won his sixth Ballon d’Or. And, Liverpool center-back Virgil Van Dijk was also on the race after giving a brilliant performance for his Premier League side. A few days ago, he posted on Instagram that Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo was not even a ‘rival’ for the current trophy of Ballon d’Or.
The Premier League star also joked about the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo from this year’s Ballon d’Or at Paris this Monday. While Cristiano Ronaldo restrained himself from any reply, his sister gave a befitting reply to Van Dijk on Instagram last night. She clearly expressed that the Liverpool talisman is not at all at the same league of his brother CR7.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister criticized Virgil Van Dijk over his Ballon d’Or joke
Katia recently wrote on Instagram that “Now, dear Virgil, where you are going, Cristiano Ronaldo has gone and has come [back] a thousand times.” She then also added, “You see, my dear Virgil, that Cristiano Ronaldo was a three-times champion in the country where you have been playing for years and you still haven’t got your hands on the trophy.”
While praising her brother, she said, “Cristiano Ronaldo was even the best player and best scorer in the country where you play Virgil. By the way, he was even younger than you.” She then further added, “Then, dear Virgil, Cristiano Ronaldo went to other places and became the greatest player in the history of club football.”

She even compared the accomplishment of Cristiano with Virgil and said, “Real Madrid, [does that] tell you something, Virgil? Maybe so, because this club, with this Cristiano guy, even beat you in the Champions League final. Of these [Ballons d’Or], Ronaldo already has five, Virgil.” She then further added, “And that fellow Ronaldo, and team-mates, crushed your ‘Oranje’ in a final. Was it hard, Virgil?”
Katia also said, “We have pity. And, dear Virgil, in one of the least successful times of his career, Cristiano Ronaldo has won even more titles than you. Awesome, isn’t it?” She then added, “Now Virgil, [you go and] win titles that really count and then we’ll talk. When you have a handful of them, the really important ones, you might be able to sit at the table with Cristiano. Or, as they say in our land, it grows and appears! For me, Cristiano you are and you will always be the best player in the world!!!”
