The 2022 Ballon d'Or ceremony was held on Monday, but the criteria for the award were slightly different this time around.

In the past, the players' performances were judged over the calendar year; however, this time round and going forward, the European season, from August to May, is the time period.

No one deserved the Golden Ball more than Real Madrid talisman Karim Benzema: The Frenchman had close to 60 goal contributions during 2021/22, and won the UEFA Champions League trophy, La Liga, and the Spanish cup too. Benzema has been waiting patiently in the shadows and now it is his turn to bask in the glory.

Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, meanwhile, is once again in the tabloids after he was seen walking down the tunnel four minutes before the final whistle in the Red Devils' 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspurs.

Another player who just can't seem to control his attitude these days is Kylian Mbappe. It is claimed the 23-year-old feels he was lied to by the PSG board after he was told a world-class No. 9 would be signed, never mind that he has Neymar and Messi up front with him.
