We all know these individual football awards are fixed, even if everyone do not want to admit it. Silva and Sterling will not win it because they are Manchester City players and European footballs Elite and Governing bodies hate Manchester City FC, hell even English domestic footballs governing bodies hate Manchester City FC. Sergio Aguero and David Silva have always been snubbed and have never won a single award, and they have proven themselves to be the beat imported in English football history, you have your evidence there and watch when Sterling becomes the best player in the world and still gets snubbed.
