Ballon d’Or is currently the most prestigious individual award in current football. The Fifa men player of the year award is equally a competitive one to the Ballon d’Or but the latter is the most regarded. Players compete on yearly basis to be named as the winners of the award. Currently, Lionel Messi is the highest holder of the award, having won the Ballon d’Or six times, some of which have been consecutive, outshining his key competitor Christiano Ronaldo who is currently at five.

Nominations for the prestigious award are done by the general public and scrutinized by the journalists before the final list is edited and released to the public by the French football company who are the key sponsors and the initiators of the award.

Ballon d'Or

This article seeks to appreciate two giant clubs in the English Premier League that have produced the highest number of nominees for the Ballon d’Or award. The clubs are Chelsea Football Club and the Manchester City Football Club. The five manchester city players nominated for the award are Kevin De Bruyne, Ruben Dias, Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling.

Chelsea is also topping the list with Five players. They include; Manson Mount who was named alongside Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, and Romelu Lukaku. However, it is quite a surprise that Chelsea goalkeeper star Edouardo Mendy missed the slot. It is not clear whether that was intentional or if it was a mistake, no one knows. In my view, Mendy deserves a slot in the nominees since he was a key influencer in the Chelsea victories from the onset of the UEFA champions league competition as well as the English premier league. Thanks for reading.
