The Balloon of Gold is the individual prize by excellence in the world of the football. It delivers it the magazine 'France Footbal' and rewards the level of each player beside the titles that has won in a natural year. However, the votes do not correspond to some values preestablecidos, by what sometimes is very subjective.

Something like this sucedió in 2010, when the prize was for Leo Messi in spite of that Xavi Hernández and Andrés Iniesta had won the same titles that the Argentinian and also the World-wide with Spain, although the '10' was the maximum goleador European after winning the Boot of Gold. This year there was a lot of controversy for awarding to the Argentinian.

Thierry Henry, current technician of the Monaco that in this period was player of the FC Barcelona, is one of which seems not understanding why players like the one of Terrassa or the one of Fuentealbilla were not rewarded neither an alone time. Thus, it put in doubt the estamentos of the Balloon of Gold, that this year expects that they are for some French player.

The technician of the Monaco left clear that does not understand the dynamics of votes of the Balloon of Gold: "The Spaniards won it absolutely everything during a period in the club and the selection and never won the Balloon of Gold. When I think that Xavi or Iniesta did not win it… Had livestock Eurocopa, World-wide and the Eurocopa again. Any Spanish and this does you question it to you".

The favourites to the Balloon of Gold

Besides, Thierry Henry spoke on the favourites to the award of this season. "It would be inadmissible that no carried it to him a French player or Eden Hazard", said, adding that the Belgian "was the best player of the Glass of the World, with difference". In spite of this, highlighted that "the logic says that it will be a French. Perhaps it was like this and this is very good for the French football".

By the moment, the The Best carried it to him Luka Modric, midfield player of the Real Madrid that it was champion of the Champions League with the white group and runner-up of the world with the selection of Croatia. The madridista also is an option in firm, as well as Hazard or any French, with special attention to Griezmann or Mbappé.
