Real Madrid's highest goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo thinks that Barcelona star Lionel Messi will win the Ballon d'Or for 2015.
He said that he thinks Messi will win the Ballon d'Or because of the trophies he won with the Catalan side last season.
Barcelona won the treble last season, while Los Blancos only won the FIFA Club world Cup.
"To be honest I think Messi is going to win this year because this kind of trophy, it depends on votes," he said on The Jonathan Ross Show, set to air on Saturday night, reports ESPN FC.
"You win competitions, you win the Champions League you win the league in terms of individual. I did probably the best season of my career which is good and I was the highest scorer in Europe [but] it's all about votes, it's difficult and to be honest I'm not very worried about that because as I said many times, I never thought I'd win three times to be honest."
Ronaldo who has denied in the past that Messi is his rival, did the same again.
"I don't have rivals, we have a normal relationship," Ronaldo said. "We shared this stage at FIFA for eight years. No one has done that in the past -- only us -- so it's good.
"I have a good relationship with him, he plays for one club, I play for another club. He won the best for him, I won the best for me.
"We have a good relationship, we are not home friends but we respect each other."
