Vinicius, the Ballon d’Or extends its arms to him

The Brazilian international seems well on his way to winning the 2024 Ballon d’Or. His coach would like to see him lift this prestigious individual award.

Last Wednesday, Real Madrid joined Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final, after dominating (2-1) Bayern Munich in the semi-final second leg. Already particularly well placed in the race for the 2024 Ballon d’Or, Vinicius Junior and Jude Bellingham strengthened their position after this qualification.

Asked at a press conference about the future winner, Carlo Ancelotti seems to have already made up his mind. “It’s not assigned today…but I think Vinicius is doing well.” He’s missing the final and then the Copa América, but I think he’s very close. I think he can win it”estimated the Italian technician.

Mbappé and Kane lose points

Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich strikers Kylian Mbappé and Harry Kane lost serious chances of lifting the award given to the best footballer of the year. Indeed, their elimination in the semi-final of the Champions League risks being crippling.

As a reminder, the rules for awarding the most prestigious individual awards have changed in 2022. The three criteria are now as follows: 1. individual performances and the decisive and impressive character of the contenders; 2. collective performances and the prize list accumulated during the season; 3. the class of the player and his sense of fair play.
