Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva: “I would change my vote” for the Ballon d’Or
Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has admitted he would change his vote for the Ballon d’Or.
The Seleção captain admits choosing Lionel Messi, but would now select Cristiano Ronaldo or Franck Ribéry if he had the chance.
“I voted for Messi, but that was when he was not injured,” Silva told Canal Plus Francia, as reported by Football Espana.
“I believe that right now, he is not at a good level for his fitness. If we consider current form, I believe that Ribéry is closer to the trophy, as is Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I believe that Ribéry deserves it more for everything he has won, but we must not rule out everything that Cristiano Ronaldo has done lately.
“He has scored many goals and his performances for Portugal have been spectacular recently.
“If I could have another chance to vote, I would change my vote, depending on the injury for Messi.”
