Several of Manchester City’s stars from a historic domestic treble-winning campaign were in the running for the Ballon D’Or.

The Ballon D’Or values team success so highly yet fails to recognize that more trophies exist in football than simply the Champions League.

Given that the Ballon D’Or is a calendar year award, De Bruyne has been one of the world’s best this year.

Silva was named Manchester City’s Player of the Season in a stunning campaign in attacking midfield, was named to the PFA Team of the Year, and won the Nations League with Portugal (defeating runner-up Virgil van Dijk).

Although none were in real contention to pip Lionel Messi, in my view the greatest to ever play football, to his sixth Golden Ball, there were some interesting takeaways from Monday’s ceremony.

City had the most successful domestic campaign in history in the world’s biggest, most-watched, and most competitive league, outdueling eventual European champions Liverpool over a 38-match league season, yet none of the team’s players finished higher than ninth.

The fact that Sterling finished eight spots lower shows the award’s over-reliance on team Champions League success as its only barometer.
