The ballon d'or is probably the most prestigious award in football, given to the best player in the planet each year. The likes of Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are probably on top of the list and they have dominated the stage for a decade now.
Christiano Ronaldo has 5 and Messi has 6 and I know Ronaldo would love to win the award this year to be in level ground with his long time rival messi. But, that won't be possible because France football has cancelled the award this year. The reason is because of the novel corona virus. This is the first time the award will not be given since its start in 1956.
Personally, I think it's a good decision because considering the state the players are in, playing matches almost every 3 days, it won't be possible for them to be in top form. Some players might get tired due to constant playing.
What is your opinion?? Should the award be cancelled?? Drop your comments. Don't forget to like and follow for more news.
