I want to become one of the greatest players of all time and this requires a lot of effort but I hope to get there.”Ronaldo was a clear winner with 37.66 per cent of total votes cast by a panel made up of international captains and coaches as well as the world’s top journalists. Messi narrowly pipped Neuer to second place with 15.76 per cent, with the Bayern Munich goalkeeper on 15.72.Meanwhile, England manager Roy Hodgson left both Ronaldo and Messi out of his own top three, voting instead for Argentina’s Javier Mascherano for the top prize ahead of Germany pair Philipp Lahm and Neuer.Ronaldo’s Real Madrid team-mate James Rodriguez was earlier handed the Puskas Award for the best goal of the year for his volley against Uruguay in the summer’s World Cup.The Colombian narrowly beat Ireland’s Stephanie Roche, who missed out on becoming the first woman to win the coveted award for her sensational Peamount United goal, which went viral last year with over six million video views online.Full list of winners at 2014 Ballon d’Or Gala:Ballon d’Or: Cristiano RonaldoWomen’s World Player of the Year: Nadine KesslerPuskas Award: James RodriguezMen’s Football World Coach of the Year: Joachim LowWomen’s Football World Coach of the Year: Ralf KellermannWorld XI: Neuer; Lahm, Ramos, David Luiz, Thiago Silva; Di Maria, Iniesta, Kroos; Messi, Ronaldo, Robben 1 Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo last_img read more
