Ronaldo is competing with Andres Iniesta and Leo Messi for the prize, the winner of which will be announced next month.
“I cannot exist just for individual awards, it would not be right, the career of a player is not marked by individual trophies, but by the collective,” Ronaldo told the Portuguese FA’s website.
“When the decision is known [for this year’s Ballon d’Or winner], I may be very happy, I may be sad…but it remains a fact of life, if you win, perfect, if not then have patience, life goes on.
“Obviously I would like to win, I will not be a hypocrite or a liar, it is something that I covert, but I cannot think about if I don’t win. Unfair or fair, it will have to be.”
