The Ballon d’Or has been on everyone’s lip since the top 10 list was released on 17 October 2022 but what is the Ballon d’Or without drama? What shocked football fans about the list is that Christiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi are not in the top 10.
Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema took home the coveted Ballon d’Or award, a first for the 34 year old.
In 2021, Messi won the Ballon d’Or award, making it his record breaking 7th win. However this year he did not finish in podium place which was a slight shocker for fans of the most decorated football stars.
Barcelona FC star player, Alexia Putella won the Ballon d’Or female award for the second consecutive time.
The prestigious awards were hosted in Paris on Monday evening, 17 October 2022.
Here’s the full list of the winners:
