UEFA BEST PLAYER IN EUROPE 2012 - 2013 | RIBERY FAVOURITE AHEAD OF RONALDO - MESSI

The local Football observers & punters have French International & Bayern Munich Franck Ribery as favourite to take the "UEFA Best Player in Europe" season 2012-2013 award. If the Frenchman wins he will be come the second after Zidane ( 2002 ) to take the prestigious Individual European Football Prize

World Football UEFA 2013

To win Ribery will have to overcome in the voting  from European Sports-Football journalist & the two other candidates, Lionel Messi ( FC Barcelona ) & Cristiano Ronaldo ( Real Madrid CF). The first scored a massive 46 goals to help his Club with the Spanish Liga, while the latter was the maximum Goalscorer of Champions League with 12 goal & notched up his 100th International Cap with Portugal.

The rest of the candidates have already been assigned their place:

4 Arjen Robben (NED) – FC Bayern München (57 points)
5 Robert Lewandowski (POL) – Borussia Dortmund (39)
6 Thomas Müller (GER) – FC Bayern München (38)
7 Bastian Schweinsteiger (GER) – FC Bayern München (32)
8 Gareth Bale (WAL) – Tottenham Hotspur FC (24)
9 Zlatan Ibrahimović (SWE) – Paris Saint-Germain FC (14)

10 Robin van Persie (NED) – Manchester United FC (10)

I personally have a feeling Cristiano Ronaldo may win this prize tomorrow. It is just a hunch & I risk being wrong of course. Franck Ribery is a worthy candidate & if he did win it would be well worth & deserved as he put in a brilliant season & helped his Club win the big three titles : German League, Cup & Champions League.

The winner will be announced tomorrow in Monaco along with the Champions League group draw which will be held earlier in the day.
