Manchester United sent their own message of congratulations to Cristiano Ronaldo after he won the 2014 FIFA Ballon d’Or.
Beating Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer to the award, it was Ronaldo’s second consecutive success and places him on three titles overall, only one behind Messi.
Ronaldo may have won two Ballon d’Or’s in a row but we all know his first back in 2008 when he was still a United player was the one he treasures the most, of course.
@Cristiano Congratulations, Ronny! Well deserved!

It wasn’t just Man United who sent their congratulations to Ronaldo as United players, current and old, also sent messages to him after he was crowned winner of the 2014 FIFA Ballon d’Or.
Well done @Cristiano . Much deserved!

When Ronaldo was sold for a world record £80m back in 2009, it seemed like United had got a fair price for their man but in the cold light of six years hindsight, it was far too cheap.
For what Ronaldo has brought to Real Madrid, he should have gone for much more than £80m but regardless of that, United fans will always have great memories of what he did with the club.
Congratulations Cristiano…now, come back to Old Trafford.
