Giorgio Chiellini, Juventus captain, has been very blunt about the Golden Ball. After Leo Messi won his sixth prize, the Italian player explained that the "true robbery" occurred last year, when the recognition was taken by Real Madrid player Luka Modric.

"The real robbery happened last year, when Real Madrid did not let Cristiano Ronaldo win the Golden Ball, it was really strange, "Chiellini said in an interview to Sky Sports Italia.

The Italian player admitted that this year it was not clear who deserved to be the winner. "This year it was difficult to say who deserved more between Ronaldo, Messi and Van Dijk. Everyone had a great season. It would be like choosing between Federer and Nadal," he added. "If they wanted to reward the winners of the Champions League, they could have left Liverpool. But if they focused more on the competition, could have won Ronaldo, even competing with Messi, "he explained.
