Wenger claims that he would refuse to vote – if he had one.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has slammed the idea of the Ballon d’Or, just days after Cristiano Ronaldo retained the prestigious gong in Zurich, report Goal, with the Frenchman claiming that such individual awards can undermine the idea of a team sport.
Ronaldo picked up the award for the second successive year, after international coaches, captains and journalists voted him the world’s best player in 2014, but Wenger believes that the whole concept of the Ballon d’Or is nonsensical:
“I am totally against the Ballon d’Or, I am a team-lover.”
“I would not vote for anyone, I am completely against it.”
