Blog #31 Bayern Munchen’s Frank Ribery has added a Ballon D’or trophy to his recent Champions League Winners medal. The award had been known as the ‘European Player of the Year’ but UEFA has given it a shake up in recent years. It is now known as the “UEFA Best Player in Europe Award”. UEFA President Michel Platini announced during the presentation in Monaco that Ribery had won, with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi as runner up and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo finishing in third place. Messi, Ribery and Ronaldo had formed the final shortlist after journalists from each of UEFA’s member countries had voted. 52 journalists from the European Sports Media association had looked at the top ten (as mentioned in my previous blog entry) and selected Ribery as the overall winner.
