France Football confirms the voting for the award, will be done by a select group of journalists, which leaves out the input of national team coaches and captains. They also announced that the shortlist of finalists, will increase from 23 to 30 players.

Also, there will be no more three-man finalist, before presenting the prize.

The date of the announcement has also been changed, with the winner to be revealed before the end of the calender year. The award was previously handed out in January.

I think, coaches and captains could be more sentimental, especially if their players or a player from their league is in contention.
