Morocco’s A football team head coach Badou Zaki said “he voted for Ronaldo” and backed him to win the prestigious Ballon d’Or, leading football news outlet Goal said in an interview with the man.
“I voted for Ronaldo in the Ballon d’Or as he deserved it,” Zaki told Goal.
“He did stunning things this year such as winning Copa del Rey and the Champions League.
“He also won individual awards like the Pichichi and was the Champions League’s top goalscorer last season, and also the Best La Liga player and the owner of the best goal. What do you need to do to be considered the best?
“As a former goalkeeper myself, I don’t think Neuer deserves to win. Germany won the World Cup with teamwork, not thanks to one player.
“There’s a lot of goalkeepers who were even more brilliant than Neuer but didn’t get the same appreciation from FIFA. Not to mention that Neuer’s own net was plundered for goals by Ronaldo himself in the semifinal of 2014-15’s Champions League.
“Neuer won the Bundesliga and World Cup but Ronaldo also won a very difficult competition, the Champions League, and got lots of individual awards.”
