With less than a week in 2015 Ballon d’Or award winner announcement, the speculations are on its peak. Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr are the three final contestants who will be rcing each other for the most prestigious individual award in football world. Cristiano Ronaldo was the top goal scorer last season as well as the year while Lionel Messi apart from the individual success lifted five cups for his club. The Brazilian Neymar for whom this is the very first glory to be among the final three of Ballon d’Or however his form and skills suggest this is just the beginning. Lionel Messi is the most favorite to win this year’s award as the Argentinian enjoyed huge success with Barcelona last year. Cristiano Ronaldo on the other hand was exceptional on individual levels but his team as a whole could not manage to win any glory in the past year. Real Madrid finished second in La Liga while their Champions Leage run was cut down by Juventus in Semi Final stage. In last seven years Cristiano Ronaldo ans Messi have been sharing the award year after year however the debate as to the supremacy of a single one is still open. Kevin Keegan however believes that instead of comparing both the legends we should feel proud that we are in an era of such great players.
“Everyone wants you to say: ‘who do you think is best?’,” he told sc.qa . “But I always say: ‘Just think how lucky we are to have two players like this’.
“It doesn’t happen very often and really they should have shared it for the last four years. You could say ‘joint winners Ronaldo and Messi’, because the two of them have been on a different level to everyone.”
He added: “I would like to see someone else win it, but I think Messi – it’s his turn. [He and Ronaldo] keep swapping it, ‘you have it one year and I’ll have it the other’.”
