Chelsea fans cry outrage as 3 Chelsea players fail to make the Ballon d’Or shortlist

The list of Ballon d’Or 2021 nominees have been revealed and there are as many as five Chelsea players on the list.

A 30-man shortlist of top performers from the last 12 months has been compiled, and five Chelsea players made the cut.

The five Chelsea players on the list are Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta,

However, Chelsea fans have reacted angrily as the trio of Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger and Edouard Mendy didn’t make the cut.

A selection of international journalists, national team coaches and captains will be polled to determine the winner, with each voter being asked to pick out their top five.

Once that process has been completed, the prestigious prize will be handed out at a glitzy ceremony in Paris on November 29.
