Umm... people didn't say Ribery should have won it JUST BECAUSE he won trophies!!
Ribery deserved it because he topped Ronaldo AND Messi in EVERY SINGLE "INDIVIDUAL" stat there is except goals because Ribery is a creator not a striker!
Ribery topped Ronaldo and Messi in:
-Chances created for his teammates
-Distance covered (meaning he actually tracked back and helped his team defend as well as attack)
-Won man of the match in THREE finals
-Won Bundesliga player of the year
-Won UEFA Player of the Year
THAT is why Ribery deserved to win.. Not because Bayern won trophies.
And the F'd up part about it was that not only did Ribery not win, he came way down in THIRD behind two players who won NOTHING, but who just scored a bunch of goals.
Thanks Alex that's very kind of you. I'm really glad you enjoy my work.
