Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery is confident of winning the Ballon d'Or.

Ribery is likely to face stiff competition from Barcelona's four-times winner Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo when FIFA announce a three-man shortlist from the candidates next month.

However, the France winger told French daily Le Monde: "I have no fear, I am confident. I have done all I had to.

"If you look at my performances all year long, I have made the difference. I may not score in every match but I set the defences on fire," he said.
