Not Good Enough: Xavi Believes Ronaldo Should Not Be In Ballon D’ Or Top Three

share on:

Barcelona icon, Xavi Hernandez has questioned Cristiano Ronaldo’s inclusion in the Ballon d’ Or list claiming that Ronaldo’s below par performance in the world cup didn’t merit an inclusion in the Ballon D’ Or top three.

The former Spain international claims that the two time ballon d’ Or winner didn’t deserve to be nominated stating “He[Cristiano Ronaldo] didn’t do much in the World Cup, and in a World Cup year, the season is defined by that,” in an interview with Sport magazine


Xavi went on to state his top three as Messi, Lahm and Mascherano. Unsurprising that two of his top three are his teammates. Xavi was full of praise for his Barcelona teammate, Lionel Messi. Claiming he imposes himself on teams.

Xavi seems to have forgotten that Ronaldo broke the goal scoring record in the champions league as Madrid won the champions league as well as leading his team to the club world cup as well as banging in 27 goals in 22 matches this season.
