Ballon d’ Or: Messi, Ronaldo and other players snub ceremony
Both Barcelona and Juventus forwards, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo did not attend Monday’s 2018 Ballon d’Or ceremony in Paris, France.
According to Sky Sport’s Alessandro Alciato, Ronaldo could, however, be imitated by Atletico Madrid ace, Antoine Griezmann.
Ronaldo and Griezmann were both shortlisted for this year’s Ballon d’ Or two months ago.
Alciato also claimed that Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric will win the Ballon d’ Or ahead of Ronaldo and Griezmann.
Ronaldo and Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi had dominated the award for ten years now.
The pair has won an incredible five awards each, with Ronaldo equalling Messi’s tally last year.
