Five-time Ballon d’Or and Puskas Award winner Cristiano Ronaldo has missed out on both the biggest award nominee lists this year. A few weeks ago, the Ballon d’Or nominees list was out, and many big stars missed out on it, including Ronaldo. Once again, today’s Best FIFA Awards list is out, and Ronaldo isn’t one of the nominees.
Being a Cristiano Ronaldo fan has been tough for the past couple of years. From Manchester United’s cruel exit to getting benched during the FIFA World Cup and, moreover, not winning his possible last FIFA World Cup.
Ronaldo has always been a trendsetter in football. From his Suii celebration to making a career-changing move to the Saudi League. He has often changed the football universe with his moves, whether on the field or off the field. But did this move result in not making the award nominee list?
Cristiano Ronaldo stats
The stats include both club and international career details.
- Appearances: 39
- Goals: 18
- Assists: 4
- Appearances: 52
- Goals: 35
- Assists: 5
If we look at the stats, there has been a clear dip in them, but the performance by the player is quite good. He has managed to score a goal in every two games he has played. However, the award nominations are based on the past season’s performances and not on their earlier performances.
As of now, we think they have made the right decision by not including Ronaldo on both their award nomination lists. Moreover, this year there is going to be a battle between Lionel Messi and Erling Haaland for those awards.
