With two decades of FIFA crowning the World Player of the Year, and 55 years since the Ballon d’Or was first presented, the FIFA Ballon d’Or award is steeped in history. Ahead of the shortlist for 2011, which will be handed out in January, we at FIFA.com want to know who you feel is the greatest winner of either prestigious title.

Do you favour the artistry of Michel Platini, or the predatory prowess of Gerd Muller? The twinkling toes of Sir Stanley Matthews, or the dazzling displays from Ronaldinho? With the awards having been taken by 45 different players, and from 19 different nations, there are plenty to choose from. See the full list here to remind yourself of which legendary players there are to pick.
