“He's the most complete player since Di Stéfano, he is his natural heir”, said the Real Madrid president.
Florentino Pérez was full of praise for Cristiano Ronaldo at the presentation of the Ballon d'Or 2017: “I'm thrilled to be here alongside former madridistas who have won the Ballon d'Or, and with Cristiano Ronaldo. For Real Madrid, and all the madridistas around the world, this fifth Ballon d'Or is an honour. Above all it's recognition for the best player in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, and also for the values of Real Madrid, such as effort, respect, teamwork and solidarity”.

“For me, Cristiano is the most complete player since Alfredo Di Stéfano, he is his natural heir. When he's gone, there will be a new age at Real Madrid, just as there was after Di Stéfano”.

Relationship with the Ballon d'Or
“Everyone knows Real Madrid. We were born with the obligation to win. That's why we have so many Ballon d'Or winners and so many European Cups. There is a beautiful and enduring love story between Real Madrid, the Ballon d'Or and the European Cup. Since 1956, this story has continued and it lives in the heart of every madridista”.
