Ribery blasts Ballon d'Or positioning

France winger Franck Ribery has blasted the Ballon d'Or list, claiming he should have been higher than 16th.

It is not surprising that Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon d'Or. I would have voted for him," Ribery told French daily L'Equipe.

"But, honestly, I am disappointed by my ranking. I had a great last season with Bayern Munich, I am back at my best and I have been praised to the skies for the last few weeks."

Best not point him toward FourFourTwo's 100 Best Players In The World list, then. He's 17th in that.
