Franck Ribery Blasts Compatriot For Voting For Ronaldo
News going round now state that Bayern Munich and French star Frank Ribery has vented his anger on Mamadou Sakho after the Liverpool defender publicly stated he would vote for Cristiano Ronaldo to win the Ballon d'Or.
Some school of thoughts believe Ribery should be given the award, following the key role he played in Bayern Munich's unprecedented treble last season but Sakho is not a student of that school as he publicly endorsed Ronaldo as the world best.
“I would vote for Cristiano Ronaldo,” the France international told beIN Sport. “He is a high-level player and athlete and the statistics of the Portuguese are really impressive.
“It is obvious my heart would vote for Ribery, but the numbers don’t lie.”
Ribery however made it clear he was not impressed with his compatriot's remarks, telling L’Equipe: “Sakho disappointed me.
“He disappointed me about what he said recently. Anyway, that’s how it is in football. He gave his opinion. This is life. It’s not a serious issue.”
Ribery should take heart, C'est la vie!... But guys i'm confused, how is Mamadou Sakho eligible to vote?
