As most of you already know, Madrid’s own Portuguese won the most prestigious individual award yesterday and as a solid Real Madrid fan, I couldn’t help but scream and clap as soon as his name was mentioned as the winner.
In my opinion, and as a lot of you might agree; the award was a sure bet for CR7 this year as his only real competition this season was Ribery. Don’t get me wrong, Ribery is an awesome player and his club side happened to win every cup they qualified for thanks to him but he isn’t just RONALDO, besides the he won the UEFA best player of the year award along side other prestigious awards so he should be satisfied with that.
Enough of the plenty story and now to the topic, Ronaldo won the Ballon d’or so why the hate?
He scored more goals than any of the other nominees and individually his performance has been sublime since the beginning of the season.
A lot of people saying on twitter and on other social media platforms that he wouldn’t have won it had Messi not been injured, I don’t want to sound childish but “shey na Ronaldo injure am?” Abi shouldn’t fitness be part of the criteria for the award winner?
I still recall when Messi won it for the third time last two season and people (especially Barcelona fans) were like “he deserved it” even though Real Madrid won the La Liga and Ronaldo also went as far as being the top scorer that season… I sincerely still don’t know and understand why Messi won it that year and not Ronaldo but let history be history.
Ronaldo won it this year and he merited it fully so can all haters do me a favour and shut their traps? Thank you and bye.
