Here are some of the twitter reactions of Manchester City and Algeria fans tipping Riyad Mahrez to lift the Ballon d’Or following AFCON victory.
Riyad Mahrez had an unbelievable season with his club and country this year. The attacker won the Premier League, FA Cup, and League Cup with Manchester City, and won the armband assisting Algeria to AFCON glory.
He did contribute some important goals to his side, including the injury-time free-kick against Nigeria in the AFCON Semifinal and goal against Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League final day. It was a pivotal contribution en route to success, but the fans have started backing him for the Ballon d’Or.
The Algerian did have a fair season with his club and country in terms of individual performances, but fans believe he’s worth to be up there during the Ballon d’Or gala.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions of fans wanting the attacker to lift the Ballon d’Or.

LOOOL This mofo runs these polls again and again in an attempt to bring Messi down and fails miserably every time
He just doesn’t understand that it’s impossible to give Messi an L in polls
And if Ballon D’or is only about trophies then why didn’t you include Mahrez and Bernardo? https://t.co/c3Ul42Hh32

Mahrez won the treble in England, now AFCON, but isn’t screaming for inclusion in Ballon d’or consideration.
It’s testament to how shitty football awards have become that players now hide behind team achievement to claim individual prizes. Mane isn’t even better than Nketiah

(In my opinion, for January until July)
The 2019 Ballon d’Or :
4. Van Dijk
10. Gabriel Jesus
Now, waiting for: August, September,
October because the year isn’t finished.
Your opinion ? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/Ym1Elyifij

Mahrez would not be even allowed to attend the Ballon d’ Or ceremony and deluded Man City and impotent Algeria fans are nominating him for Ballon d’ Or.
