Man City World-Class Player Dreams Of Winning Ballon d’Or Award

The Ballon d’Or award is undoubtedly a dream for every football player and Manchester City midfielder Rodri has opened up on his dream of winning the prestigious award even though it may be difficult for him as a midfielder.

Rodri - Manchester City

Rodri is been regarded as the best player in his position in the world. He has on different occasions proved to be one of the most valuable players in Pep Guardiola’s squad. In fact, there is evidence that the team will never remain the same in his absence.

Apart from perfectly playing his role as a holding midfielder, the Spain international has developed the habit of scoring important goals on a difficult day for Man City.

He found the back of the net when City welcomed Chelsea to Etihad Stadium and fell behind with a lone goal scored by Raheem Sterling. On a difficult day that seems that the reigning Premier League champions will taste a defeat at home, Rodri levelled the score and secured a point for his side.

This is in addition to his match-winner against Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League final last season. Also, he was crucial to the recent success of the Spanish national team, he was named the 2023 UEFA Nations League player of the tournament as Spain emerged as the champions.

Therefore, his name is always mentioned whenever the football experts are discussing future winners of the Ballon d’Or award.

Rodri also admits to dreaming of winning the Ballon d’Or. He said via tribalfootball: “I’ll be honest: you have to think you’re the best. Or at least think you want to be. It’s all about trust. With this instilled mentality you have a chance of becoming the best, or at least the best version of yourself.

“We all dream about it (the Ballon d’Or). It would be an incredible achievement. But I also know that some legendary midfielders haven’t made it. I would love for a defensive midfielder like me to win it, it would mean a lot.

“It would mean a lot to the winner, but also to the young people who want to play in that position and know that they can be recognised in a different way to the player who scores or does something brilliant. For football, it would be an interesting sign.

“But I’m already enjoying my ranking. Imagine, I can say that I am the fifth-best player in the world.”
