Ronaldo deserved the award, and he deserves the FIFA Player of the Year award too! Many argue that Messi should have won the Ballon d’ Or. No way, remember Messi was out for 6 very important weeks last year, after tearing a thigh muscle during a Champions League match.
It’s simple, Messi’s Barcelona didn’t win the Champions League and Barca didn’t win La Liga.
Ronaldo scored 31 goals in the Premier league and scored 8 goals in the Champions League, becoming the top scorer in both competitions.
