‘Ronaldo won’t travel to see Ribery win’

Former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Gregory Coupet believes that Cristiano Ronaldo will win the Ballon d’Or.

The Real Madrid forward has been shortlisted for the FIFA award alongside Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery.

And the shot-stopper has claimed that if the Portugal international travels to Switzerland in January for the gala, then he will win.

“It’s not a good sign for Ribéry. To be honest, it has all smelt a bit fishy for a while, from the moment there were changes made to the regulations,” he told Radio Montecarlo.

“It’s not good news. Nobody can see Cristiano travelling to Zurich just to see Ribéry receive the trophy.”
