The Ballon d’Or awards ceremony in Paris on Monday night saw Cristiano Ronaldo receive the prestigious accolade for a fourth time.

The Real Madrid star had an incredible year, winning both the Champions League and Euro 2016 over the course of 12 months.

However, despite Ronaldo’s achievements, not everyone believes that the Portuguese attacker should have won the Ballon d’Or.

Closest rival Lionel Messi continues to set records for Barcelona and has been in exhilarating form over recent weeks and months, scoring goals at will for club and country.

Although the Argentina international lost out in the final of the Copa America over the summer, the mercurial forward played a major role in his club winning La Liga last season.

Messi’s hardcore fans have taken to Twitter after Ronaldo’s Ballon d’Or award, with some congratulating him but most defiant that the Barcelona man is the superior player. Here are the best tweets.
