Ballon d’Or 2022: Close votes, he won it – Thierry Henry reveals player to win award
Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has claimed that Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema has already won the 2022 Ballon d’Or after guiding Los Blanco to a Champions League triumph over Liverpool on Saturday night.
Benzema was impressive as Real Madrid secured their record-extending 14th European Cup following a 1-0 victory over Liverpool in Paris.
Vinicius scored the winning goal for Carlo Ancelloti’s side at the Stade de France.
And Henry, a former Barcelona striker, feels like there is no point in casting votes for this year’s Ballon d’Or and should instead just be awarded to Benzema.
Speaking on CBS Sports, Henry was quoted as saying the following: “I just wanted to say something to France or whoever is voting [on the Ballon d’Or]. Close the votes. Benzema won it. Bye.”
