Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has slated Fifa president Sepp Blatter following comments he made over former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.
The usually mild mannered ex-Chelsea boss was left fuming after Blatter claimed Bayern Munich ‘keeper Manuel Neuer should win the Ballon d’Or this year ahead of Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has been in sensational form and Ancelotti said that unlike last year there can be no debate about who has been the stand out player this time round.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s 25 Hattricks in Liga:
“It never fails to amaze me the things he [Blatter] says, but what can we do about it. It seems the Fifa president is unable to keep his mouth shut,” Ancelotti said.
“It’s a subject we’re always talking about and whilst there was competition from players like Messi last year, there’s not much thought needed this time.
“It’s the year of Cristiano, as he’s been scoring lots of goals and winning important titles, which means there’s no doubt he should win the Ballon d’Or. These words [of Blatter] don’t make much sense.”
