The former Galactico feels that Cristiano Ronaldo is the favourite for the Ballon d'Or this year after another sensational campaign..
Goalkeepers are always going to be at a disadvantage in a competition like Ballon d'Or though. Precious few times can you say a goalkeeper defined a season. Their performance is often compromised by the 4 (usually) in front of them, they don't get the glory and often the blame.
in an era with messi and ronaldo, its hard for anyone to win the BDO.
however there were times that these two won it when someone else deserved it more however this year is not going to be one of those times.
