While we wait for the winner of the 2021 Ballon d'Or, the rankings are starting to come in. Riyad Mahrez knows his. The Algerian international finishes 20th in this ranking. The Manchester City player has had a great year, winning the English league and losing the Champions League final to Chelsea's Edouard Mendy.
With this 20th place in the Ballon d'Or, Riyad Mahrez continues to establish himself as one of the best players in the world. But the 30-year-old is still lower than in 2019 (10th) and 2016 (7th).
