Cristiano Ronaldo is the biggest contender for the conquest of a fourth Ballon d’or after his champions League in May with Real Madrid, and Euro 2016 in July with Portugal.
Some Spanish media have already sold the wick: it is the Portuguese who will receive the supreme individual distinction awarded on Monday evening at 8 pm and announced by the French newspapers L’Equipe and France-Football after the vote of journalists from 173 countries.
But it is not really a scoop … Ronaldo dominated as ever the year 2016, with the historic victory at the Euro of a Portugal never titled internationally, less than two months after that in the Champions League with the Real Madrid.
Only shadow on the board: the “Football Leaks”
His rivals, Lionel Messi, quintuple Ballon d’or (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015), or Antoine Griezmann, could not stand the comparison. The Argentinian, winner only of the Spanish championship with Barcelona, ​​lost again in the final of the Copa America. And the new French pertuche had to yield twice against Ronaldo in a final, with Atlético Madrid (Champions League) and then the France team (Euro).
“It may have been my best season both individually and collectively,” said Ronaldo in an interview with the Spanish daily Marca in mid-October, referring to a “fantastic year”.
The only shadow on the board, his name was mixed in early December with the scandal of the “Football Leaks”, an investigation conducted by several European media behind the scenes of foot-business.
