Zidane: Iniesta Deserved A Ballon d'Or

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has paid tribute to FC Barcelona superstar Andres Iniesta after the midfielder announced his decision to leave the Catalan giants.

The 33-year-old announced on Friday that he will leave the LaLiga giants at the end of the season.

The Los Blancos coach is the latest manager to pay tribute the Spaniard, who he feels should have won the Ballon d'Or in 2010.

"The two or three times that I coincided with him is charming because he is very reserved," Zidane was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.

"I like the people who show everything on the field and outside they are calmer. I only have good words towards him and admiration for his football.

"I wish him the best as a footballer and person. He deserved the Ballon d'Or, especially when he won the World Cup."

What about Steven Gerrard in 2008, when it was given to Penaldo instead, what about Messi 2017, when it was given to Penaldo instead. This Zidane must concentrate in saving his job.

2010 Ballon D'or, yes i agree with you Zizou. Unfortunately people get emotional when they judge player's performance. He's not talented than the player that won the award that year, but leading your team to uefa and world cup victory is above all!
