The Ballon D’or tends to go to a player who has performed exceptionally well at the World Cup, someone who won it. So this year it should be for a Germany player. It was always that way until 2010 when Leo Messi won despite having a fairly average World Cup, so nothing is for certain.
A gang of Ronaldo fans have reacted just before the announcement of winner. They kicked sixty one balls [equals to goals scored by Ronaldo last year] and published it on internet with a title “Let’s Kick Platini Out!! Cristiano Ronaldo Ballon D’or”. Their faces were covered during the whole process.
There were claims the pair’s relationship was a frosty one after video footage appeared to show the former Manchester United star avoiding a handshake with the Frenchman at the Club World Cup, though the reports were later denied by both parties.
