In exceptional circumstances, exceptional provisions. For the first time in its history, which began in 1956, the Ballon d'Or France Football will not be awarded in 2020, for lack of sufficient fair conditions. Explanations.

• Because such a unique year cannot - and should not - be treated as an ordinary year. When in doubt, it is better to abstain than to persist.

• Because the Ballon d'Or trophy conveys values ​​- such as exemplarity, solidarity and responsibility - other than sporting excellence alone.

• Because the equity which prevails for this honorary title could not be preserved, in particular at the statistical level and also of the preparation since all the aspirants to the reward could not be accommodated in the same boat, some having seen their season cut off radically , others don't. So how can we compare the incomparable?

• Because we did not want to affix an indelible asterisk of style to the prize list"Trophy won in exceptional circumstances due to the Covid-19 health crisis" . We will always prefer a small sprain (to our history) to a large scar. This is the first time since 1956 that the Ballon d'Or has taken a break. The parenthesis does not enchant us but seems to us the most responsible and logical. Protecting the credibility and legitimacy of such an award also means ensuring its flawlessness over time.

• Because only two months (January and February), out of the eleven generally required to form an opinion and decide between the best (s), it is far too little to gauge and judge, given that the other matches have taken place. then - or will take place - then in other conditions and formats (in camera, five replacements, European Final 8 in a single match) too far from the usual panorama. We cannot bring ourselves to rely on crippled seasons, with so many special arrangements, to elect the best. The best of what, by the way? It would not be worthy of our history.

• Because of our approximately 220 jurors (men and women combined) spread around the world, some may have been distracted or diverted from their observation mission due to other priorities and emergencies to manage.

• Because the BO story is too precious to take the risk of damaging it with a wobbly exercise. In these hectic times, taking a break is a luxury as well as an inestimable necessity. So that football, as a whole, regains momentum and momentum, passion and emotion. Can't wait for the golden ball ...

It is infact, Lewy, who has been cheated out.

This is painful. Lewandowski looked destined for it this year. Messi would've gladly handed him the prize at the gala.

But then again, I'm happy a vegetable farmer, who happens to also be the second worst freekick taker in Serie A will not smell the award. Baba was just padding stats and scoring dubiously awarded penalties with the hope of winning the award. His people better arrange one Dubai Penal d'Or award for him, like they did last year, so he won't cry and throw tantrums like an upset teenage girl. grin grin

Lewandoski has been more deserving of the award, hands down!
