Since 2007 all the Ballon d'Ors went to LaLiga players; there's definitely some bias.
Hope the midget never wins an international trophy, that comfort-zone-loving boring-ass choker boy.
They have never given it to Cris unless he won CL, but this midget got it even when he hasn't won shit like 3 times simply because he's considered a divine football god or smth, there's many other ways to win games than his tiki-taka bullshit.
Giorgio Chiellini claims Juventus teammate Cristiano Ronaldo “was robbed of the Ballon d’Or last year, as Real Madrid wanted to stop him winning.”
The trophy went to Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric in 2018, while this evening the winner was Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo skipped the ceremony for two years running after learning he would not be holding the golden globe aloft.
Asked about the decisions, Chiellini made some remarkable comments on Sky Sport Italia.
“Ronaldo was really robbed of the Ballon d'Or last season, when Real Madrid decided to make sure he couldn't win it and that was really weird,” said the defender.
“This season, it was more balanced. With all due respect, Modric even in his best season of his career didn't deserve it. That was a signal from Real Madrid, as they wanted to stop Ronaldo winning it.
“He won the Champions League, but by that logic, (Liverpool defender Virgil) Van Dijk should've won it this year, or last year (Antoine) Griezmann, (Paul) Pogba or (Kylian) Mbappe for doing extraordinary things at the World Cup. Modric made no sense.”
Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or on five occasions, while Messi now has six.
Russia oligarchs are pushing for a Messi career ending spell into retirement from a Russian team. Ukraine made a last ditch effort to interfere in the votes to get Messi to consider Ukraine to play in but Russia wasn't having it and after proving to the world that a Ronaldo disinformation campaign can actually work to influence voting against Ronaldo as proven last year, Barcelona and La Liga owners capitulated to Russian demands and Epstein didn't kill himself.
Barcelona owners then recused themselves to not allow them to vote for Ronaldo. Chiellini was simply approached by an NRA member gun toting Russian asset at a foreign champions league post game celebration where he quickly realized he was being set up. Only now is Chiellini going public to shed light on the CL farce we all see today.
Questions to be answered: Was the Russian honeypot the same lady that tried to entrap Ronaldo in Vegas? Who really killed Epstein? Are Nedved96 and DUKAC highly trained and paid Russian internet trolls? Does Turk really think the USA committed Pearl Harbor on their own soldiers as a reason to enter WWII to begin our global hegemony?
Folks, Chiellini is simply showing what a witch hunt Real Madrid started last year because now that Ronaldo was an "outsider" they couldn't stomach an outsider victory.
