Twitter goes nuts as Luis Suarez is left off the list.
With the 23-man Ballon d’Or shortlist being announced on Tuesday morning, it’s fair to say there aren’t many surprises and the grand prize will likely go to one of two players (you know who we mean) but one big shock was that there was no room for the controversial Luis Suarez.

Despite scoring 31 goals for Liverpool last term and helping the club to push Manchester City all the way to the wire in the race for the Premier League title.
However, the folks on Twitter couldn’t get their head around this, and had no problems expressing their feelings on the subject.
Didn't know that FIFA Ballon d'Or was given to the player with the best attitude on the pitch rather than their footballing merit. #Suárez

Despite our hate for Luis Suarez, dude deserves to be in the top 5 of the Ballon D'or awards not only the 23man list. #BallondOr

Remember when Luis Suarez scored over 30 goals in the league and helped a team go from 7th to 2nd, but didn't get nominated. Good times.

I think people need to remember, Zidane lost his Bd'Or chance due to a headbutt, Suarez isn't on the list for obvious reasons.

Apparently Suarez isn't one of the best 23 players in the world, which is quite frankly ridiculous. pic.twitter.com/iORqw5u5ES

It's a scam not to nominate Luis Suarez for the Ballon D' Or. Sentiments apart, he was the best player in the whole of Europe last season
