He won the league and scored over 50 goals with another 20 plus assists. Crazy numbers.
Usually the winner comes from the European Champions in a year without the WC/EC. How many times did Ronaldo win it off the back of winning the European Cup? That's what VVD has done.
What did the convicted tax fraudster win this year? La Liga again. Well done him. Failed to win the Spanish Cup again, failed to win the European Cup again, failed to win the Copa America again. Failed to deliver the serious tin on 3 occasions, and got himself dismissed in the CA as a send off. That's apparently worthy of winning the Golden Ball these days.
This trophy is supposed to be for the best player over the last 12 months. If you want to give it every year to the best player over the past 5-10 years, that's a different discussion.
