Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or, Franck Ribery 2nd & Lionel Messi 3rd [Bild]
Bild report on Monday afternoon what we all suspected: Cristiano Ronaldo will win the Ballon d’Or this evening.
The respected German newspaper claim they have been told by “FIFA sources” and that Franck Ribery will come second and Lionel Messi third.
They lament the fact that Franck Ribery won’t be winning the individual award but conceded what many believe – Ronaldo was the best individual player in 2013.
We can expect plenty of rumour and suggestions surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s win as the Ballon d’Or voting was extended on the same day the Real Madrid striker scored a hat-trick for Portugal in Sweden.
