we have finalists!
Xavi, Andrés Iniesta and Leo Messi are the three finalists for the Ballon d’Or, while VDB made the cut as well, for the coach of the year, along with Pep Guardiola and José Mourinho.
I think there’s a great chance for a Spaniard to win the award. Although all three had great club seasons, Xavi and Iniesta have the added advantage of excelling with their country as well.
It would be a great way to end the year, to have a Spanish player and a Spanish coach pick up these awards, no?
