Patrice Evra posted a lengthy Instagram rant to tell people to 'open their eyes' to the corruption within the Ballon d'Or organisation. He stated "Enough is enough. You had to create a trophy for Lewandowski because you felt guilty. You knew there was corruption. Open your eyes! ".

He also believes Edouard Mendy deserved the Yashin Trophy and was snubbed because he is African: Why not Edouard Mendy? Of course, the African Cup, we are the monkeys and we have the only competition where we have to leave our teams for three or four weeks and nobody respects us."
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has confirmed Cristian Romero will not play again in 2021.
