'I'm not stupid, Ronaldo had to win it' – is the Fifa Ballon d'Or too political? Goal Next Previous 0 8 Jan 2015 09:20:00 Franck Ribery is the latest in a long line of footballers who have slammed football’s biggest award for not being handed out on merit. Is the Frenchman right? BET = RMA £15.3 DRAW £43.3 ATM £60 ANALYSIS By Carlo Garganese "I learned a lot during last year's Ballon d'Or gala. As soon as I got there, I told my wife that I would lose," a spurned Franck Ribery told Sport Bild . "There is a lot of politics. I saw how Sepp Blatter was hugging Ronaldo and how his entire family was there. I'm not stupid. It was clear that he had to win it." Not for the first time since the creation of the Golden Ball 59 years ago - and the merging of the prize with the Fifa World Player of the Year in 2010 - a high-profile football star complained that the Fifa Ballon d'Or is a political award. In the past few years, Jose Mourinho, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Diego Maradona and even two of this year's contender ...
From full-backs in midfield to diamond formations: Reviewing 2014's tactics DECEMBER 30, 2014 11:54:12 AM PST By Michael Cox Tactically, 2014 was an interesting year for football at both club and international level, with more variety than usual, and some intriguing concepts being popularised -- or re-popularised. Here's a review of some of the most interesting tactical features of 2014. Guardiola's full-backs in midfield It's extremely rare to see players in positions you've never seen before, but Pep Guardiola's use of Philipp Lahm and David Alaba early in 2014 was genuinely revolutionary. It was particularly noticeable against Manchester United in last season's Champions League: their defensive positioning was that of natural full-backs, but rather than surging down the flanks to make overlapping runs, they instead drifted into central midfield positions. The idea, supposedly, was to allow Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery to come deep and collect possession with space to run into -- without overcrowding ...
Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer have been named on a three-man shortlist for this year's Ballon d'Or prize, Fifa has announced. The three were chosen from an initial 23-man list, which included Gareth Bale, and the world player of the year award will be announced on 12 January. Nadine Kessler (Germany), Marta (Brazil) and Abby Wambach (USA) were shortlisted for the women's award. Real Madrid forward Ronaldo won the Ballon d'Or in 2013. Meanwhile, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti, Germany's World Cup winning boss Joachim Low and Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone are on the shortlist for the Fifa coach of the year. Portugal international Ronaldo 29, scored 51 goals in the 2013-14 season while helping Real Madrid win the Champions League. He beat Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery and Barcelona's Messi to the 2013 award. Four-time winner Messi, 27, won the honour in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Ballon d'Or winners 2013: Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) 2012: Lionel Messi (Barcelona) 2011: Lionel ...
Hard Tackle Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery believes either Manuel Neuer or Arjen Robben deserve to win the 2014 FIFA Ballon d'Or - but fears 'politics' could work against them. Bayern goalkeeper Neuer, widely regarded as the best number one in the world, helped Germany win the World Cup, while Holland forward Robben enjoyed an excellent campaign with club and country. Both men are on the 23-strong shortlist for the award, but Cristiano Ronaldo is the favourite to win for a second straight year after leading Real Madrid to Champions League success. Question Do you agree that the awarding of the Ballon d'Or is a question of "politics" rather than sporting achievements?
Eintracht Frankfurt 0:4 Bayern Bayern Munich opened up a seven-point advantage at the top of the Bundesliga thanks to a Thomas Muller hat trick at Eintracht Frankfurt. Germany international Muller broke the deadlock in what was becoming a frustrating game for Bayern before adding two more in as many second-half minutes. Xherdan Shaqiri added a fourth late on as Pep Guardiola's men continued their march towards a third straight Bundesliga title. Frankfurt had clearly done their homework and watched how Borussia Monchengladbach had held Bayern to a 0-0 draw recently as they employed similar tactics. They frustrated their opponents by preventing them from creating any chances while being quick on the counter whenever they had the chance to break. It was not until midway through the first half that Bayern finally got a chance to score, and they took it. Franck Ribery exchanged passes with Robert Lewandowski before setting up Muller, whose first shot was blocked on the line, but he followed up and converted wi ...

The City offers 13 million a year to Marco Reus, according to Bild The star of Borussia Dortmund has a buyout clause of 25 million euros contract until June 2016. Bayern and Real Madrid are also meant to you. The German international Marco Reus is a target for Manchester City, according to the newspaper "Bild", had offered to Borussia Dortmund player a salary of 13 million euros a year. Reus can leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of this season in exchange for payment of a termination clause of 25 million euros. Bayern Munich until now was considered the favorite in the race for Reus although his name has also been frequently associated with the Barcelona and Real Madrid. Economically, the offer of the City may be above where Bayern are the highest paid players Franck Ribery, Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger having an estimated 12 million a year salary. However, it is possible that in making its decision the player also consider various other economic factors as it did and does in 2012 when, being ...

Ribery ruled out of Manchester City clash, but Robben fit Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has been ruled out of their Champions League opener at Manchester City after his knee problem flared up again. The Frenchman made his first appearance of the season, coming of the bench to score during Bayern's 2-0 win over Stuttgart on Saturday, but skipped Sunday's post-match training session and will miss Wednesday's Group E opener against the Premier League champions. "Ribery will not take part in the final training session," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola admitted. "He is at home and cannot play. "The doctor saw him on Monday and said he cannot play." Ribery, 31, missed the first two weeks of the season with a knee injury and could well find himself being rested between matches as he feels his way back to full fitness. Guardiola did, however, say that Arjen Robben - who missed Saturday's game with a knee problem - was fit and had been included in the squad. The Spanish tactician will need to reshuffle his defence ...

In the quarter finals, Germany and Brazil emerge to face each other in the semifinals. Germany-France: This was a forgettable match. Central defender Mats Hummels scores an early goal and Germany goes on to win 1-0. France did not show the urgency you expect from a team facing elimination. We'll never know what effect the absence of their creative winger Franck Ribery had on their performance. So adieu to Le Bleus. They played well and will be one of the favorites for Euro 2016. Brazil-Columbia: Again, defenders provide the goals. Thiago Silva scores early from a corner and David Luiz scores on a beautiful free kick halfway through the 2nd half. A late penalty converted by star striker James Rodriguez made for an exciting ending, but Brazil holds on for the win. That gives Rodriguez a goal in every match and 6 goals in 5 matches. As with France, Columbia has had to play the whole tournament without their best striker, the injured Radamel Falcao. Columbia were entertaining and they should do well in the Co ...

Horse placenta, MRIs and the magic sponge: The crazy world of football injuries - Mon, 16 Jun 2014 12:25 BST From injecting horse placenta to spending days in a simulated high altitude environment, footballers will go to incredible lengths to recover from injury before a major tournament. When Luis Suarez tore his cartilage back in May 22, his chances of playing for Uruguay in Brazil were virtually written off. Thirty years ago, surgery would have left a six-inch scar on his knee. Now, less intrusive keyhole surgery, with almost no scarring at all, has put him on course for a miracle comeback. Not everyone is quite so lucky. Holland’s Rafael van der Vaart (calf), France’s Franck Ribery (back) Germany's Marco Reus (ankle), Spain’s Victor Valdes (ACL) and England’s Theo Walcott (ACL), all could have been World Cup superstars, but injury took their opportunity away from them. A third of football injuries develop over time through the overuse of certain muscle groups, or by playing on with a slight in ...

Brazil 2014 World Cup Preview: Groups E to H With groups E and F about to start play tomorrow, we take a look at groups E through H in our World Cup Preview. Group E: Ecuador, France, Honduras, Switzerland Ecuador Lead by Manchester United’s Antonio Valencia, the Ecuadorians look to spring a surprise in Group E. Buoyed by their recent 2-2 draw against England in a friendly, Ecuador will feel like they can compete against the likes of France and Switzerland. However, a lack of discipline and a poor defense will ultimately doom Ecuador to exit at the group stage. France The loss of midfield star Franck Ribery should hurt signifigantly, but an 8-0 demolition of Jamaica in their final friendly seems to have cured whatever ailed the French team heading into Brazil. There is little to no chance of the repeat of what happened in 2010 when the French team literally refused to show up, and will be looking to put that dreadful performance behind them. Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema looks to lead the team in attack ...

FIFA President Sepp Blatter believes the long European soccer season is causing some of the world’s top players to get hurt before the World Cup.

GOAL LOOKS ATT THE HIGH-PROFILE PLAYERS WHO WILL BE ABSENT FROM THIS SUMMER'S TOURNAMENT AFTER LOSING THEIR BATTLE WITH FITNESS Marco Reus joined an increasingly lengthy list of star names who will sit out of the World Cup due to injury when he was ruled out of the competition on Saturday following an ankle injury sustained in Germany's 5-1 win over Armenia. Earlier in the day, Franck Ribery was forced to pull out of the France squad owing to a back problem. Les Bleus had previously lost both Clement Grenier and Steve Mandanda. Colombia had been worried about the fitness of striker Radamel Falcao for months following his anterior cruciate ligament injury in January. After months of uncertainty, Jose Pekerman finally confirmed that the Monaco star will not be fit in time to feature in the summer showpiece as he unveiled his 23-man squad.

This World Cup was set to be GREAT. But so many people are being scratched from rosters due to injury. Franck Ribery is out now for France with a back injury. Italy lost Montolivo, and are significantly weaker without him, as his replacement has only been capped 23 times. The USA has left Landon Donovan off the squad. Brazil and Germany are the only two squads with real hopes of taking Spain down. But then there's Belgium and the Netherlands. Both of those squads are probably going to go very far this year.

And he was quick to state that the best man won when speaking to the press afterwards. "If people gave the award to me, it is probably true that I deserve it.

Chelsea to Make Bid for Bayern Munich Midfielder This Weekend. Chelsea are readying a bid for Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos with Football Direct News claiming the west London side will register their interest in the German international this weekend. Kroos wants parity with top earners Franck Ribery, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phillip Lahm a demand the Bundesiga side have resisted for some months and the Bayern Munich man now has just a year to run on his current contract and as such could be ready to consider offers for his services knowing his value will rapidly decrease once the summer transfer window slams shut. Chelsea are willing to meet the 24 year old’s wage demands and this source claims that Kroos is to act as a long term replacement for Frank Lampard and is part of Jose Mourinho’s overall plan to refresh his squad as he plans for the future. Man United have long been linked with a genuine interest in Kroos but the Old Trafford side have distanced themselves from the move since Louis v ...
Since reaching the World Cup Final in 2006, France have disappointed at the major tournaments. The last World Cup was a disaster both on and off the pitch. They were fortunate to qualify for this edition, but in doing so showed they can rise to the occasion when it really matters. This year, France find themselves in another straightforward-looking group, and also with one of the most star-studded squads out there. Yet if recent history is anything to go by, they could easily finish last...     World Cup Record:   Qualifications: 14   Wins: 1   Best performance: Winners (1998)     The Team   Coach: Didier Deschamps.

Louis Van Gaal vs. United ! Louis Van Gaal has faced Manchester United four times and, on every occasion, football fans have been treated to high-octane matches filled with goals and attacking endeavour. In September 1998, the Dutchman brought Barcelona to Old Trafford for a memorable Champions League tie. Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs scored early goals but Sonny Anderson and Giovanni restored parity on the hour. David Beckham’s stunning free-kick was then cancelled out by Luis Enrique’s penalty, capping a wonderful 3-3 draw. Remarkably, the sides did it all again two months later. The Catalans led first through Anderson, only for Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole to put United ahead. Two Rivaldo goals then sandwiched Yorke’s second to clinch another entertaining 3-3 draw at Camp Nou. Eleven years later, in March 2010, Van Gaal’s Bayern Munich welcomed United to the Allianz Arena. Wayne Rooney opened the scoring in the first leg after just 66 seconds, before Franck Ribery's deflected free-kick set up a dr ...

Front page news in Germany: Arsenal and Liverpool want Muller-- Last week German magazine Kicker kicked off the Thomas Muller to Manchester United stories. They did a feature on four players who were giving Bayern Munich four problems. Those players were Bastian Schweinsteiger, Javi Martinez, Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery. The problem in Muller's case, according to Kicker, was partly that Louis Van Gaal would like to sign the player if and when he's confirmed as Manchester United manager and, perhaps more surprisingly, they claimed that the German international is interested in such a move. That led to every English newspaper running the story and elaborating in their own way on it. Muller then had to deny he was eager to leave, but didn't guarantee he'd stay forever and Franz Beckenbauer said Bayern needed to keep Muller but would have to find a solution if he wanted to leave. This week's edition of Kicker has Muller on the front page, along with the claim 'Arsenal and Liverpool also want Muller', it's ...

MISSING: Franck Ribery - last seen slapping his kidnapper Dani Carvajal
Plush Franck Ribery is a better likeness:
Pep Guardiola said that he wanted Franck Ribery to play angry in order to be at his best against Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal and early in the match Ribery proved that he was maybe a bit too angry. A scuffle early in the match led to a showdown between Jerome Boateng and Daniel Carvajal. With Boateng putting a finger to one of Carvajal's cheeks, Ribery walked over and slapped him across the other.
Bayern Munch might just go after Julian Draxler considering the downturn in performance Franck Ribery has shown. Personal hunch.
Guardiola: "We need Franck Ribery to do well against Real Madrid. He's at his best when angry"
Franck Ribery slaps Carvajal! A dirty gesture from the French football player!

VINE: Franck Ribery should have been sent off for this slap on Carvajal in the first half.
Bayern winger Franck Ribery says he does not regret striking Daniel Carvajal and claims the Real Madrid full-back hit him too. Ribery, 31, was caught on camera slapping Carvajal towards the end of the first half. The France international freely admitted to doing so, but after the game he maintained that he had also been on the receiving end. "It’s true that there were tensions and nervousness," Ribery told AFP. "Yes I gave him a slap but I don’t regret my gesture because he hit me too. "After a defeat like that, everyone is despondent." Ribery followed up his under-par first-leg performance with another flat display as the reigning European champions crashed out. He said that the second-leg defeat came as a shock but that the Bundesliga winners must lift themselves for the DFB-Pokal final against Borussia Dortmund on May 17.
Trouble ahead? Bayern wideman Franck Ribery (left) appeared to slap Daniel Carvajal in the face
I am always dazzled and befuddled when people are comparing the qualities of Franck Ribery to Ronaldo and Messi. He's never their class in every department of the game. Ribery has lost his form since he was denied the world best (which I think he deserved it more than Ronaldo) and he started the season with an injury. 2014 is far different from 2013. Ribery has been lackluster in his games for Bayern this season. 2013 is gone and its all Ronaldo this season which Ribery far trailing him on obvious basis. Their performance shouldn't even be compared. Ronaldo is way better than Ribery any day but I still stand on my grounds that Ribery was a worthy Ballon D'or winner last year than Ronaldo. Objective is far and rare and it take fairness to pour out. I want anyone to come and tell me what Ronaldo did better than Ribery in 2013 with the exception of goals scored.
Byern Munich Franck Ribery Lucky to get away after slaping Real Madrid Cavarjal at after the munchen boys lose cool at the heated UEFA champions leaque semi final 2nd leg at Alianz Arena. Real Madrid Won by 4-0 on aggreagate.
Franck Ribery, who thought he should have been the world footballer of the year ahead of the mighty Ronaldo, may as well have been selling wieners in the stand. He was removed with 19 minutes remaining, perhaps to do just that.!!! Hala Madrid!
Bayern Munich 0-4 Real Madrid (Agg: 0-5) During the course of tonight's match, Bayern Munich made 656 passes compared to Real's 287. More tellingly, however, is the performance of each side's star player. Cristiano Ronaldo scored two and helped to create another while Franck Ribery failed to even put a single cross into the box. MORAL OF DIS STORY: The end justifies the means. Even parkin the bus is good as long as u get a result. Hope Guardiola has learnt his lesson
Arjen Robben still tried a bit but Franck Ribery? Just as Yomi Kazeem said, he should apologise for his FIFA Ballon D'or nomination. Shame!
Well bayern players ask your wives to roast your faces in pans as your club can never earn fans . Discipline is a must for sports not behaving like barbarians in the ports ... Franck ribery was ur dad a brothel owner and came down to bribery ? What a rape champions my foot ! Ronaldo and Ramos villains 2 years ago became heroes . Guardiola lmao lmao at you! Go back to Barcelona .
And that Franck ribery is why ronaldo got the balon d'or and not you
