The organizers have made it known that the reason they decided to not give this year's award is that, the criterion for presenting the award hasn't being met and in view of this all plan to present it in 2020 is off!.

"As the organiser of the Ballon d'Or, the Group L'Equipe, to which France Football belongs, decided not to award the most prestigious individual trophy there is in 2020," a statement said.

Pascal Ferré, editor-in-chief of France Football, added: "For the first time since 1956, the Ballon d'Or will take a break.

"There will be no edition in 2020, because it turns out, after thoughtful consideration, that all the conditions are not met.

"We believe that such a singular year cannot - and should not - be treated as an ordinary one. world.

"Finally, the equity that prevails for this honorary title will not be warranted, especially when it comes to accounting and preparation," Ferré said.

"All the award seekers will not be in the same boat, some having seen their season cut short. Therefore, how can we establish a fair comparison? To avoid overly convoluted calculations and projections, we chose the least bad of the options."

How sad this will be for players individually and a sort of heartbreaking news for them. The award will resume back in 2021 and that'll be another reason for battle of play amongst star players next season.
