Although many people feel that the Ballon D’Or should go to either Messi, Xavi or Andres Iniesta, there is one man who went on to say that none of these three players are worthy of winning this prestigious award.
After all three players were called out as the last three runners for the Ballon D’Or, Inter Milan president, Massimo Moratti, went on to make his feelings known.
“I find it very unjust, Sneijder had a phenomenal season and he won everything he could have, for me he deserved to win the Ballon d’Or. I think that is very unjust that the award is given to someone who did not perform the whole year even if we are speaking about a great player.”
There is really no question about Snijder being a great player and being that all 3 finalists are coming from Barcelona, I think the Dutchman definitely should have been considered in the final three. Sneijder had an amazing season for Inter Milan and was a prime factor in bringing the treble to the Serie A giants but unfortunately he is flying under the radar. With Inter Milan not looking as great as they were last season, it looks like this may have been Sneijder’s best opportunity to win the Ballon D’Or.
Do you think that the former Real Madrid player should have been considered as a finalist? Who do you think will win the Ballon D’Or? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
