It was a great privilege to attend the 2019 Ballon d’Or last night 🏆 I was humbled by the warm reception that I received in Paris and I’d like to say thank you to everyone who made us feel so welcome. Firstly I’d like to congratulate @leomessi on winning your historic sixth Ballon d’Or 🏅 As I also said last night at the ceremony, it’s important to sit back and admire greatness when it’s in front of you. Congratulations on another incredible year. On a personal level it was an honour to be nominated and I am extremely proud to have come second and in the same company as two of the greatest players to ever play the game in @leomessi and @cristiano We’ve enjoyed some good battles this year and I hope there will be many more to come. I am proud of my journey and I hope that my route in the game can help inspire others to always believe in yourself and to never give up on your dreams. I am hungry for more success on the pitch and will be working as hard as I can to keep improving and to continue to strive to be the best that I can be. It’s been an incredible 2019 so far but none of this would be possible without the love and support of my family, thank you for always being there. I must also say a huge thank you again to all of my teammates at Liverpool and the national team. Finally thank you to everyone in the football world for all of your messages of support, it means a lot to me and my family ❤

A post shared by Virgil van Dijk (@virgilvandijk) on

Katia Aveiro, Ronaldo’s half sister in response to Van Dirk’s jibe launched into a tirade on Instagram attacking the Dutchman highlighting her brother’s far superior trophy haul than the Liverpool defender.

Katia slammed Van Dijk in a lengthy rant on Instagram in Portuguese saying that Virgil van Dijk is not worthy of ‘sitting at the same table’ with the Portuguese and Juventus star when it come to achievements on the football pitch.

Cristiano Ronaldo opted not to attend the ceremony in Paris and instead prioritising the 2019 Gran Gala del Calcio gala in Milan to receive his ‘Best Player in Serie A’ and ‘Best Forward’ awards.

Snippets form the Instagram translated rant in Portuguese goes like:

“Now, dear Virgil, where you are going, Cristiano Ronaldo has gone and has come a thousand times. 

“You see, my dear Virgil, that Cristiano Ronaldo was a tri-champion in the country where you have been playing for years and you still haven’t got your hand on the trophy. 

“Cristiano Ronaldo was even the best player and best scorer in the country where you play Virgil. By the way, he was even younger than you. 

“Then, dear Virgil, Cristiano Ronaldo went to other places and became the greatest player in the history of a club, Real Madrid. Tell you something Virgil? Maybe so, because this club, with this Cristiano guy, even beat you in the Champions League final.”

Acho que há pessoas a viver completamente frustradas!!! E fora da realidade… A tal humildade! Repórter: "Cristiano Ronaldo não estará cá esta noite. É menos um rival a ter em conta." Van Dijk: " É Cristiano Ronaldo realmente um rival?" Foi esta a resposta do central holandês do Liverpool, quando confrontado sobre a ausência do astro português da gala desta noite. É certo e sabido que Ronaldo não ganhará o prémio desta noite. Apesar de ter vencido importantes títulos colectivos…mas isso é outra conversa e que lá na frente iremos ver onde vai chegar a verdade sobre o futebol !!! Agora, caro Virgil, para onde tu vais, Cristiano Ronaldo já foi e já veio mil vezes . Vê lá bem, meu caro Virgil, que o Cristiano Ronaldo foi tri-campeão no país onde tu já jogas há anos e ainda não conseguiste meter a mão na "lata". O Cristiano Ronaldo até foi o melhor jogador e melhor marcador no país onde jogas Virgil. Por sinal, era até bem mais jovem que tu. Depois, caro Virgil, o Cristiano Ronaldo foi para outras paragens e tornou-se no maior jogador da história de um clubezito. Real Madrid, diz-te algo Virgil? É possível que sim, porque esse clube, com esse tal Cristiano até te derrotaram na final de uma tal de Champions League. Dessas, já o Ronaldo tem 5, Virgil. E esse tal Ronaldo e companheiros, com as quinas ao peito, esmagaram a tua "laranja" numa final. Foi duro, Virgil? Temos pena. E, caro Virgil, numa das épocas menos conseguidas da sua carreira, o Cristiano Ronaldo ainda venceu mais títulos que tu. Impressionante, não é? Agora, Virgil, vai vencer títulos daqueles que realmente contam e depois falamos. Quando tiveres uma mão cheia deles, dos realmente importantes, talvez te possas sentar à mesa com o Cristiano. Ou como se diz na nossa terra, cresce e aparece! E para mim @cristiano és e serás para sempre o melhor jogador do mundo!!! E quem não gosta que ponha na roda do prato !!!😂❤️❤️❤️( como se diz na nossa terra ,pequenina para muitos ) mas de onde saiu o melhor de todos os tempos…#assinoembaixoluisfaria #cr7n1 #Eotrabalhocontinua #respostastánahistoriaenomuseu #orgulhodomeurei #Deusnocomando
