Multiple Real Madrid players nominated for Balon d’OR

Another awards list, more Real domination.

The nominees for the much heralded, and perhaps slightly over-hyped, Ballon D’or award have come out. Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid dominated the nominee list with multiple players.

The Real Madrid players who’re included thus far are: Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema, Marcelo, Isco, and finally Cristiano Ronaldo. That puts seven Real Madrid players on the 30 man list of nominees for the award, an incredible achievement.

It’s nice to see other Madrid players get recognized in the nomination process. Although, Ronaldo will likely be the favourite for the award after yet another year of European success.

Last year’s award was won by Ronaldo, making it his third win in four years. Another win this year would tie him with Lionel Messi for the most Ballon d’Ors in history with five.
