Suarez cannot win Ballon d’Or this time but he can easily win it next year, how? There are some points if Suarez and Liverpool follow them then he might be fighting for Ballon d’Or next season.
- If Suarez displays the same football for his country in the World Cup 2014, Brazil.
- If Suarez and Liverpool continue the same form next season.
If LFC have been playing CPL this season then he might be fighting for it.
Now the point is that everyone will be thinking that he cannot win the award due to lack of trophies with Liverpool and Uruguay?
And the answer to this question is fair and square, “Gareth Bale”. The Welshman won PFA player of the year (POTY) award last season despite not winning anything, and even not qualifying for the Champions league, and that too against Van Persie’s trademark performances that helped United won the 20th league title, so If the criteria is same for Ballon d’Or as is for PFA POTY award, then Suarez could be in with a chance.
Now the question arises on what ground the Ballon D’or is awarded, these three factors could be important in that:-
- It may be awarded on a player’s effect on the team.
- Player’s contribution and carrying the goal burden alone.
- Player’s contribution in winning the trophies.
If only trophies matter then this time it should be Franck Ribery, because he helped Bayern to win the treble last season. Ribery scored goals for Munich but not that much as compared to Messi and Ronaldo.
Suarez has shown his potential this season by scoring 19 goals in just 12 games. The 26-year-old, an influential player, a game changer has not only showed that he can score goals also he can create them too plus he has the ability to score every type of goal.
One thing is remaining that can Suarez play as good in Champions League?
For this wait for next year.
