While the 2021 France Football Ballon d’Or should not escape Lionel Messi, Sir Alex Ferguson simply explains why his little protégé Cristiano Ronaldo deserves the individual distinction this year.
Since the Ballon d’Or France Football does not reward a collective performance but the best individuality, Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t he ultimately the best placed for the 2021 edition? Unlike the favorite that is Lionel Messi, winner of the Copa America, the 36-year-old Portuguese won nothing with the Juventus (who even finished 4th in Serie A) and his selection. But he is perhaps the one who has hit the hardest this year.
