Carlo Ancelotti was asked who his five would have been after the stake against Athletic Club, to which he replied:
“I am a Real Madrid coach and I could not choose any player other than the team. If I had had to vote, I would have voted with Benzema as first, Vinícius second, Courtois third, Casemiro room, Kroos fifth, Modric, Camavinga … I don’t know who else I’m leaving. That is so, but you have to respect and congratulate Messi“.
In this way, the Italian would have awarded the highest individual distinction for a footballer to the French forward, who finished in fourth place with 239 points, behind Jorge Luiz Frelho “Jorginho” (460), Robert Lewandowski (580) and Lionel Messi.
