ballon-dor-ronaldo Not as easy as last year we think this one will be closer with all the old and some new faces thrown in the mix.The Ballon d’Or is an award handed out to the world footballer of the year. “The Golden Ball”, referred to as the European Footballer of the Year award, is an annual association football award. It is presented to the player who has been considered to have performed the best over the previous calendar year.It is voted for by journalists and organised by France Football magazine.

Cristiano Ronaldo believes that Barcelona play better football than his Real Madrid side and he has tipped Lionel Messi to win the 2009 Ballon d’Or.

The Portugal winger, who joined Real Madrid from Manchester United for a world record €94m (£86m) in the close season, won the Ballon d’Or last year and was included in the 30-strong shortlist for the award formerly known as the European Footballer of the Year, which was released on Sunday.

“Barcelona play better football [than Real], but why?” the 24-year-old told France Football magazine in an interview released yesterday. “Because they have been together for several seasons, not two months. Barça are better than us today but the real question is who will be in front at the end of the season?”

The winner of the Ballon d’Or will be announced on 1 December and Ronaldo said that while Xavi and Samuel Eto’o were strong contenders, Argentina’s Messi was likely to be the recipient.

“He’s the favourite. He won the Champions League . Why not him? If he wins it, he will have deserved it.”
