Next Thursday, the winner of the Ballon d’ Or will be announced and it is expected that the prize will go back to Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. The two star players of Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively, have dominated the international (individual) football elections for many years and Zinédine Zidane expects that this will continue to be the case in the coming years.
“It is true that they are great. When we look at their stats, they are incredible,”says Zidane at a press conference prior to the Champions League duel with Borussia Dortmund,”It’s surprising to see how many goals they did not score. They are two great players. One makes the other better and vice versa”, the Frenchman is quoted by Goal.
“I think that this battles, this duel, is going to take a while,”continues the trainer, who is not concerned about Ronaldo’s lack of goals,”The fact that Ronaldo is not at his best doesn’t matter much, because he is so big. He has wide shoulders. When things don’t run as he wants, he always knows how to turn it around. Be careful with criticism of Ronaldo: he is coming.
