Cristiano Ronaldo clinched the Ballon d’Or for the second year in a row last Monday, but Arsene Wenger has no interest in the award and claims he is “totally against” it, according to the Mirror.
It was the third time the Portuguese star has won the honour, and no matter how you feel about him, it is impossible to deny his quality; this season in particular.
Having scored 61 goals in 2014, as well as guiding Real Madrid to the Decima in Europe and the Copa del Rey in Spain, Ronaldo has shown once again that he is an exceptional individual.
Wenger believes far too much emphasis is placed on individual achievements however, and claims that it is far more important to perform as a team.
“I am totally against the Ballon d’Or, I am a team-lover,” he said.
“I would not vote for anyone, I am completely against it.”
This is a fantastic attitude to have, and his philosophy has clearly had an impact on the squad. We are known for our fantastic team cohesion, and the players regularly speak out about the unity and the harmony at the club.
