Finally, the whistle came at the start of the show, announcing the start of the annual mass struggle over the identity of the Golden Ball winner for the so-called “best player in the world”.

This is the official date of the biggest collective football inconsistency in the standards, when many would find the least bit of disgust in telling you the exact opposite of what they told you last year.

This is no longer a secret, whether it is the Ballon d’Or award, or the FIFA “The Best” award, or even during the famous merging period between them. The common denominator has always been that the so-called “standards” are nothing but a gelatinous entity formulated according to the necessities of the scene.

In the days of controversy over the difference between the importance and difficulty of the league as a long-term marathon and the Champions League as a knockout tournament, there was an intrusive statement on the tongue of Jose Mourinho summarizing this case.

“If you win the league I will tell you it is the most important, and if you win the Champions League I will tell you it is the most important, what really matters is what I win.”

Mourinho hasn’t said anything like that in public but we can’t rule out the possibility of him saying something like that in general, he is one of the most pragmatic men in football with a distinct Machiavellian inclination. Ultimately, this is exactly what happens after every individual award in football.

If the most scored wins, we will say that the individual numbers are the most important, and if the most culminated person wins them, we will say that titles are the most important, and if those who do not have this or that win them, we will say that the influence is the most important, and that the time has finally come to get rid of the obsession with numbers and titles, and so on. The story to be sold is serviced annually, whatever the method.

England, for example, follows this method with overwhelming success in marketing the Premier League. The presence of strong competition is evidence of the league’s strength, and its absence is evidence of its strength because it has such a strong team. A strong team winning the title indicates the league’s strength, while a weak team winning the same title at the expense of its strongmen… definitely indicates the league’s strength.

To be honest, the options for the Golden Ball this year are more interesting in terms of diversity than any other year, as the conflict that finally emerged from under the most famous monopoly grip in the history of the game, “Messi – Ronaldo” has a large number of candidates, who will not be surprised by any of them ascending the podium to catch the gold ball. .

The absolute preference for titles is absent from this year’s competition, as the Premier League champion is the runner-up in the Champions League, and the League champion has only this candidate who did not put his hand on the award at the height of his explosion because he does not know where to put his teeth, and certainly will not put them now, neither his hand nor his teeth.

There is also the share of international competitions. In terms of titles, Messi does not bring the King’s Cup, but rather the Copa America, which has been absent from his country since the nineties of the last century, while the rest of the unfortunate have not been helped by their teams, whether instinctively like Lewandowski of Poland, or shocking results like Kante of France.

Kante’s name was echoed strongly after a sweeping performance in the last few meters of the Champions League, and if this filters him for this period in particular, we are talking about an entire year, and while France’s early exit at the hands of Switzerland toppled his shares, a colleague next to him had all the good luck in crowning Italy with the Euro title. .

Suddenly Jorginhos name has become loud, especially with his winning the award for the best player in Europe. He is the only common denominator between the Champions League and the Euro, but the numbers game, as usual, does not stand in his favour. Does this man have enough popularity to receive the same treatment as the man who climbed the same podium? Champions League and World Cup runner-up without remembering numbers?

Mentioning the numbers, we must always see Cristiano Ronaldo in the nominations, even if his country left the round of 16 of the Euro, and his team left the round of 16 of the Champions League, and finished fourth in the Italian League, or rather occupied any position other than the lead for the first time in a decade of Time, but he is still the top scorer in the Italian league at this age, and most importantly, he is still Cristiano Ronaldo.

The scoring numbers clearly stand in the side of Robert Lewandowski, but he owns only the German League, and for such things he created the Golden Boot. Karim Benzema does not lack a factor of individual performance after a great season with Real Madrid, but this applies to Benzemas season, not Real Madrid’s season.

Mohamed Salah, for example, is clearly the best player in the new season of the Premier League, and he made a good numerical tally last season, but his team did not win anything, and does the second half of the year (the first half of the new season) make a difference in choosing from the original?

As usual, everyone is his and him, and as usual, it is up to 180 journalists around the world who have been selected by France Football to determine the identity of the “best player in the world”, but does this mean that the winner will be the “best player in the world”? Absolutely .. the winner will be the “Golden Ball holder” only.

The controversy will remain for years after the winner is announced. If you take a random sample of the tweets that comment on the “selection rules,” you will find that everyone is already trying to market their candidate, and to be honest, you will find that each of them has an aspect of the right in one way or another, but the selection mechanism is not “academic” or what Like it, rather a “selected democracy” so to speak, and if you want to know the other side of democracy, whether it is selected or open to the public, it led Donald to the presidency of the most powerful country in the world one day.

No matter how absurd this spectacle may be to an outside observer, the vast majority of participants in such a choice must have been fully convinced of what they had done. For example, 10% of those who voted for Trump could not have voted believing that what they were making was the wrong decision, but this is the common confusion between “merit” and “reality.”

In other words.. the result of any elections is enough to convince you that so-and-so has assumed a certain position, because it is a reality, but it alone is not enough to convince you that he is the most appropriate.. Just as the result of the golden ball will be enough to convince you that so-and-so is the holder of the golden ball, but the best in the world? These matters are not resolved that simple.
