Ballon d’Or to Iniesta? and coach of the year to Del Bosque?

Italian newspaper Gazetta Dello Sport guarantees that Andrés Iniesta will win the Ballon d’Or, Xavi will be second and Messi third. As for the coaches, Del Bosque will win, Mourinho will be second and Pep will be third.

Gazetta dello Sport is not a 100% reliable source, although just a week ago, the same newspaper named the top three and they were proved right.
