Better marketing

"I don't give too much importance to these things and I have always said that there are players with more marketing than me," he said in the interview with the Uruguyuan sports supplement Ovacion.

The striker was ommitted from the list on the 2nd of December when they named their three top players, Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Cristiano Ronaldo for 2016. The winner will be announced during a gala on the 9th of January in Zurich.
