Ballon d’or 2014: Ronaldinho incensed Messi, not Cristiano Ronaldo

While Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were once again selected from the three finalists of the Golden Ball, a former winner of the famous trophy delivered his feelings on both players: Ronaldinho. 

The International Football Federation (FIFA) and the French magazine France Football announced this Monday in late afternoon: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer are the three finalists of the 2014 Gold Ball. Without much surprise, this announcement-expected every year of firm foot-has inevitably aroused various party catches. The legendary Ronaldinho did not escape the rule. Asked about the South American radio Coca-Cola FM, the Brazilian indeed said: “Ronaldo is very complete, but Messi is magical.” The 34-year-old game leader so clearly gave his opinion on his favorite in the Gold Ball race: Lionel Messi.

his bias is not necessarily surprising in itself when one remembers the period 2004-2008 where Ronaldinho was playing in the company of Messi, to make the fine days of FC Barcelona (which was imposed 0-1 this weekend in Valencia). It was during this period that Ronaldinho won the Golden Ball-in 2005-thanks to exceptional performances in the club (triple League, Supercup and Champions League). The whimsical “Ronnie” plays today in the Mexican championship, in Querétaro FC. And you, who do you support? Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo or Manuel neuer?
