Ronaldo to shun Ballon d’Or ceremony

Reports in the Spanish Press claim that Cristiano Ronaldo will not attend the Ballon d’Or presentation.

AS believe that the Real Madrid forward has decided to shun the FIFA gala in January after the governing body gave Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery ‘more positive write-ups’ in their contender profiles for the award.

The Portugal international is also still angry with President Sepp Blatter after comments he made last month, admitting to students at the Oxford Union that he preferred Lionel Messi.
