Now he has slipped from the first position to the 27th position. Cristiano was ranked 27th in the list of 50 sportsmen released by Sports Pro Media.
Argentina’s captain Lionel Messi has topped the list this time. This is only the second time in the star’s career that he has topped this list. Ronaldo, who was first last year, did not even get a place in the top ten this time.
French superstar Kylian Mbappe is ahead of Ronaldo on the list. Apart from Messi, Mbappe is the only other male footballer in the top ten. The striker of the last World Cup runners-up, France, is at the 9th position in the list.
Messi has already topped the list of sportsmen influencing the market in 2020. The fact that he has won the world title and the move to Major League Soccer, the American league, has led to Messi’s advantage in the market.
