If Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t fired up for El Clasico this weekend then Luis Suarez’s latest comments will surely enrage the Real Madrid forward. A player who prides himself on being the best in the world, Ronaldo admitted that Lionel Messi will probably win the Ballon d’Or in January recently on the Jonathan Ross show.

Neymar and Suarez have been wreaking havoc in Messi’s absence while Ronaldo hasn’t been at his best this season, despite scoring 13 goals in 15 appearances.
Hear Suarez talk about Neymar, watching Ronaldinho during his Barca heyday and the Clasico below.
