Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that he is "not obsessed" by individual trophies, having missed on this year's Ballon d'Or after winning it five times.
The Juventus striker also missed out on FIFA and UEFA's player of the year trophies as former Real Madrid teammate Luka Modric, a World Cup runner-up with Croatia, swept all before him.
"I'm not obsessed by individual prizes," Ronaldo told Portuguese sports daily Record.
"The most important thing is to win collective trophies and help the team. The rest comes naturally."
Ronaldo added: "I don't think all the time of beating records. I work above all to help the club and be at my best level.
"The technical, tactical and physical level of all teams is better today," he said. "It's increasingly tough to win so I have to keep working hard to stay on top."
