I respect the guy I know nothing about who I see in a top tournament and I see him performing exceptionally well the whole tournament. This is how I happened to know Ribery in wc06. We heard so much about Messi and C.Ronaldo before the same tournament and they didn't do anything worth writing home about. I just wish Bayern will go as far as the final so that Ribery can get the media exposure he deserves.

Out of those 3 I will rate them in this order
1. Messi
2. Ribery
3.C.Ronaldo

Because Ribery isn't Argentine (so he can't be "the next Maradona") and because he hasn't won the Champions League.

fully agree with you Calcio. i guess its teh bundesliga for one, but then again with france hes exceptional.

but most importantly the people watching know how good he is, he knows how good he is and those idiots giving out votes for some random award arent that important really.

Yup. If he was playing in EPL, he'd be god of football already.
Other than that, Brazil-Argentina factor...

Great future ahead of him :)

Ribery Agrees Four-Year Barcelona Deal - ReportFranck Ribery's agent has stated that joining Barcelona would be a phenomenal move for the French star, while Bild am Sonntag report that a deal has already been agreed and a four-year contract put forward.

Franck Ribery has reached an agreement to join Barcelona from Bayern Munich in the summer and will put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal at Camp Nou, according to a report in Germany

While the French international's agent has stated that he would only leave the Allianz Arena to join a giant like the Blaugrana, Bild am Sonntag believe a deal has already been done.

"If Ribery goes, it will be only be to a team like Barcelona, where all the players are stars. Playing for Barcelona would be phenomenal for him" Ribery's agent said earlier.

Rumours surrounding Ribery's next move have been fuelled by comments emanating from Bayern, Ribery's agent and the player himself in recent weeks and it now appears that he will move.

Juventus are said to be interested, but Barcelona's ability to meet both the Bavarian club's asking price and the former Marseille star's demands has seen them take control.

Ribery himself has stated that he does not think that he will see out the contract that he has with Bayern, which runs until 2011, due to the level of interest in his services.

That does contradict an interview that he gave to Sports Bild only two weeks ago when he stated that he is not motivated by money and that he had no plans to leave.

Malita, is that Amelie from Montmartre hugging the monkey? Or is it nikita?

According to German media he's agreed a deal with Barcelona for next season (talk of 30M-ish fee and 4 seasons contract). So next season might be his final leap to world stardom and potential legendary status as we all know the worth of the barcelonisme when it comes to creating legends.

Ribery isn't that good-looking. I'm not kidding, that's a big factor. Although IMO Messi & C.Ronaldo are not good looking either, but looking like pre-pubescent kids is considered to be good these days. And, therefore being a fan of Ribery is not cool to the average football follower.

The Bundesliga factor is also there. And, a good thread this one, Calcio.

i don't think it's his look.
simply he doesn't play in a league which attract attention.
