Ronaldo Nazário doesn’t think that Lionel Messi should win his seventh Ballon d’Or title this year, and would give it to striker who’s been at a ‘brutal’ level for the past decade.
Last week the Ballon d’Or revealed their 30 man long list to be named as this year’s ‘world’s best player,’ with Lionel Messi the favourite to walk away with the award, for what would be the seventh time.
Along with Messi, Chelsea midfield pair Jorginho and N’Golo Kante have been high on the list for most likely winners, with the former winning the Champions League and Euro 2020.
Robert Lewandowski is also well fancied, after breaking a near 50 year-old Bundesliga goal scoring record, a year after he was robbed of the award.
However Ronaldo Nazario, believed that the award should go to final player ranked in the top five most likely winners, Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
The youngest ever winner of the award took to Facebook to say, “Without a doubt, my candidate for the Ballon d’Or is Benzema. The best striker, brutal level for 10 years and champion above all. Don’t you think?”
