Did Cristiano Ronaldo lose the Golden Ball by snubbing Platini?

In deciding to snub Michel Platini during the award of the trophy of the World Cup of Clubs, Cristiano Ronaldo could see his side lowered in the optics of winning the Golden Ball.


Yesterday in Rabat, the evening was beautiful for all supporters of Real Madrid, winner of the World Cup of Clubs after his victory 2-0 against the Argentine club of San Lorenzo. A first in the history of the club that will however be tarnished by an image. This image of the Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, deliberately ignoring Michel Platini, UEFA president at the medals and Trophy awards. The look of the former triple French golden balloon to CR7 says a lot about the interpretation of this mood gesture. The recent words of Michel Platini regarding his wish to see a German world champion receiving the Golden Ball are obviously not passed through the throat of Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, beyond the mere scene of coldness, this attitude could well serve Cristiano Ronaldo in the optics of the votes for the Golden Ball. Indeed, the Portuguese is the best player in the world intrinsically speaking, his arrogant character can sometimes annoy. And when it is directed towards the boss of UEFA, only because he gave his opinion (he does not vote for the Golden Ball), one can wonder about this behavior that demonstrates a lack of fairplay, and respect for the game. Not happy to have pointed the spotlight at him again, at a time when his club was on the world stage for the first time, CR7 may have put a bullet in his foot in his gold ball race … Has Cristiano Ronaldo lost any chance of winning the Golden Ball?
