Arjen Robben did not make false hopes. Even being selected from the 23 contenders to the 2013 gold ball, the Dutchman knew he was not doing the weight against Cristiano Ronaldo.
The international Oranje Arjen Robben was one of the 23 players vying for the 2013 gold Ball. But he did not believe in his chances, logically. However, oddly enough, the Bayern Munich wingman does not support teammate Franck Ribery. He believes that it is Cristiano Ronaldo who deserves to lift the golden leather. To the dismay of the player of the team of France.
During an interview with journalists from the Dutch daily Voetbal International, Arjen Robben entrusted his support. “Even though I was named in the last 23 players for the Golden Ball, I knew I wouldn’t win.” I never even thought about it. It is always the same players who are vying: Ronaldo, Messi and now Ribery. But it is justified. This is an individual reward so I think Ronaldo will win the Golden Ball. He deserves it
