Barcelona’s Argentine ace Lionel Messi won the 2009 Ballon D’Or, or European Footballer of The Year last week.
Ronaldo, winner in 2008, came in second.
Both player have had a sensational 2008/2009 season; but the Champions League made the difference.
Messi and Barcelona were comfortable winner in the final, with Ronaldo overshadowed completely in Manchester United shirt.
The award could have gone the other way if Ronaldo and MU were the Champions, only IF.
