Ribery criticizes the decision to award Ronaldo the Ballon d’Or

riberyFrench international player Franck Ribery has expressed his anger at missing out to Cristinao Ronaldo for the Ballon d’Or award.

Ribery who plays for Bayern Munic claimed the Real Madrid attacker did not deserve the award.

Germany Newspaper AZ quotes Ribery saying:

“I won everything I could win with Bayern and individually. Ronaldo on the other hand did not win anything.

I am not sad that I missed out, but it does hurt a bit. I deserved to win the Ballon d’Or.

It was clear that Ronaldo would win it. The voting deadline was extended by two weeks. This had never happened before. It wasn’t about football. It was a political decision.”

Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery were on the shortlist for the Ballon’dor. Ronaldo was crowned the world’s best player last week in Zurich, Switzerland.

Per BBC Sport, the Portugal international scored 66 goals in 56 appearances over the course of the year and also helped his country qualify for the 2014 World Cup with two match-winning displays against Sweden in the play-offs, including a hat-trick in the second leg.
