Diego Forlan may be 31-years old but he looked far from it at the World Cup in South Africa where he saw himself be awarded with the Golden Ball award. Although he wasn’t able to be contacted by any of the major club’s that was expected, Forlan still showed that at 31-years of age, he may still have a lot left in him.
With Forlan being a lead candidate for the Ballon d’Or title alongside Wesley Sneijder, Andres Iniesta and others, one guy who believes deserves this title is Atletico Madrid president, Enrique Cerezo.
“Nobody is more deserving than him of the trophy”
Is what Cerezo went on to say in a recent statement.
Forlan is one of the best in the game and has even won the Golden Boot twice in a 3 year span, not a easy thing to do. Although many people may think someone is more “deserving” of the trophy, I wouldn’t be surprised if Forlan was to win the Ballon d’Or. Forlan has enjoyed countless number of brilliance moments and lead Uruguay further than anyone thought they would in the World Cup.
“The Ballon d’Or should be given to [Diego] Forlan, In three years he has won two golden boots, has won the Golden Ball at the World Cup, and has been one of the top scorers in the league. Nobody is more deserving than him of the trophy.”
Is what the Atletico Madrid president went on to say at a presentation earlier today.
