Cristiano Ronaldo was the great absentee at the Golden Ball gala and Virgil van Dijk, who stayed close to winning it, joked about the presence of the Portuguese in the event
Cristiano Ronaldo has very accustomed to the world of the football to his acts ególatras, especially in the events in which it knows that, in spite of being nominated, does not go to carry the prize. It did it in the gala of the Balloon of Gold of the past year, with Luka Modric like winner and repeated it in the The Best FIFA 2019, won by Leo Messi.
This Monday was not different and the forward of the Juventus of Turín did not attend to the event organised pro France Football for the delivery of the Balloon of Gold. It was a secret to voices that the crack of the FC Barcelona would carry the award this year and Cristiano Ronaldo applied the same technician that a year backwards, when the prize was for his ex compañer: not assisting to the act.
The one who himself was present was Virgil go Dijk, that finish in second position and remained to the doors of the prize with so alone seven votes of difference with regard to Leo Messi. An enormous footballer that also deserved the prize by his tremenda season with the Liverpool but that had the bad luck to measure to the best footballer of all time.
Before the delivery of prizes, Go Dijk was asked after the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo in the gala of the Balloon of Gold. "Cristiano has not come, there is a rival less?", it said him a Dutch journalist, asking him the opinion, indirectly, on the gesture of the luso of not attending to the gala.
The answer of the Dutch defence does not have waste. "Ah, but that Cristiano had options?", it asked the footballer of the Liverpool, with a question in tone jokingly and, why not to say it, of 'zasca' to a Christian Ronaldo that thought that deserved the prize and that possibly do not take the words of the footballer 'network' too well.
They go Dijk clears it by Twitter
In a tuit of answer to the British journalist Piers Morgan, Go Dijk cleared that his words only were a prank. "Hello Piers, if you do not go in in the chaos of the social networks and listen the complete interview would have understood that it was a prank, respect to both", commented the defence, with regard to Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi.
