Barcelona legend Stoichkov slams Ballon d'Or: A French stitch-up!

Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov has slammed the Ballon d'Or and UEFA president Michel Platini.

Stoichkov says Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery has the gong sewn up.

"It's a done deal; it makes me sick. Platini is a smooth operator and Ribéry is French and has won a lot of trophies," blasted Stoichkov.

"In '94 they tried to kick us [Bulgaria] off the pitch and then there was the French referee against Spain. These things have to be said."
