Manchester United attacker Cristiano Ronaldo received zero votes in the selection for the 2022 Ballon d’Or as the Portuguese finished in his lowest rank in 17 years.
Ronaldo finished in the 20th spot in the 2022 Ballon d’Or rankings. He slid down 14 spots compared to his standing last season when the Manchester United player finished sixth.
Ronaldo scored 24 goals and provided three assists in 38 games for United and Juventus last season. He was one of 11 players to finish without a single vote to his name.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harry Kane, Joshua Kimmich, Phil Foden, Darwin Nunez, Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo, Mike Maignan, Christopher Nkunku and Antonio Rudiger are the other players to finish without a single nomination.
Cristiano Ronaldo is enduring a difficult span in his career at the moment. The Portuguese walked down the tunnel before the final whistle for the Red Devils’ home clash against Tottenham on Wednesday (19 October). He was an unused substitute during the game.
He has since been omitted for Erik ten Hag’s team’s Premier League clash against Chelsea on Saturday (22 October). Ronaldo is also training with the club’s under-21s at the Carrington training ground for three days.
