Four Barcelona Players among the Top Ten Contenders of European Player of the Year Award

This year’s European Footballer of Year Award has four Barcelona players in the top ten nominees. Earlier, 30-men shortlist for the award was announced last month. Four Barcelona players who have made it to the top ten are: Lionel Messi, Xavi, Iniesta and Ibrahimovic who moved to Barcelona last Summer from Inter Milan. Barcelona rivals Real Madrid has 2 players in the top ten and they are Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka. Both the players joined Madrid last Summer for record breaking transfer fee. That means there are 6 La Liga players in the top ten. Only 3 premier league players: Steven Gerrard, Drogba and Rooney- are in the top ten nominees. Samuel Eto'o is the only Serie A player in the list.

Well, I am not surprised to see four Barcelona players among the top ten contenders of the Ballon d'Or award. They are the reigning champions of Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey, and they became the first ever Spanish club to win the treble last year. Ronaldo is the current winner of FIFA World Player of the Year and European Footballer of the Year awards, but Barcelona’s Lionel Messi seems to be favorite for both the awards this year.
