off the field

Ferr remembers this Reputation off the field is also a criterion when scoringhowever, he thinks that Benzema’s conviction for complicity in blackmail should not stand in the way of becoming the first Frenchman to win the award since Zinedine Zidane in 1998.

Messi and Ronaldo “have been involved in one of the most intense rivalries. In the history of sports,” says Ferr, he is pleased that the Ballon d’Or has contributed to nurturing him, but thinks it will take time for a similar duel to be repeated.
