Real Madrid accused of rigging Ballon d’Or award to prevent Ronaldo from winning

Juventus defender, Giorgio Chiellini has alleged that Real Madrid rigged the 2018 Ballon d’Or award to ensure Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t win it.

The 2018 Ballon d’Or award was won by Real Madrid player Luka Modric despite huge numbers pulled by Ronaldo in the season.

Winning the award would have seen him attain a record 6th Ballon d’Or award which has now been achieved by his rival Lionel Messi last night.

Speaking in Milan, Chiellini said: “It’s ok that Messi has won the Ballon d’Or this year.

“The real theft was last year, Real Madrid decided that Cristiano should not win the Ballon d’Or. It was really strange.

“Cristiano won the Champions League, [but I suppose] by that logic Van Dijk should have won it this year.

“Maybe last year Griezmann, Pogba or Mbappe should have won for doing extraordinary things at the World Cup. Modric made no sense.”
