'He was only good for two months' - Filipe Luis attacks Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo's Ballon d'Or claims

Although if Luis is talking about the Champions League he may have a point as Ronaldo scored just twice in his first eight games of last season's competition, but did then go on to notch 10 in his final five matches against Bayern Munich, Atletico and Juventus.
