Can Buffon Win a Ballon d’Or Degree?
Ballon d’Or will now choose five players, and it seems to be able to take into account the career of players like Gianluigi Buffon Sbo88bet.org.
Football magazine in France yesterday announced a list of 30 people for the award, with several Serie A stars nominated.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a heavy favorite for the award, having won La Liga and Champions League with Real Madrid last season.
The Champions League final is seen as potentially decisive for the award, with Buffon also having chances. Journalists should give their nominations based on individual and collective performance, player class and player career.
However, this year everyone will nominate five players, not three as in previous years. French Football described the change as more relevant and logical, as it would expand the scope of possibilities.
The possibility of this change could benefit Buffon, as fewer journalists have to choose the legendary goalkeeper over Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
His long career can also be considered. At the age of 39 he is at the level that makes him always one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
