Xabi feels for Real Madrid pal Ronaldo over Ballon d'Or snub

Xabi Alonso felt for Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo after he was snubbed for the Ballon d'Or.

Barcelona rival Lionel Messi won the award for the fourth time.

Xabi said: "Cristiano Ronaldo was not able to win the Ballon d'Or but we know he is a fantastic player and capable of anything. For me it is an honour to be here for a second year as part of the world team."
