Good thing this award hardly carries any weight compared to FIFA's Ballon D'or. This UEFA throphy has proven to be a joke.
Stop sucking up to Messi and Ronaldo so much. Iniesta is an excellent team player, indeed, he controls the game and makes amazing plays. Also, it's good to see other players to win it aside from Messi and Ronaldo.
