Former Brazil superstar Ronaldo has shared his suggestion for the 2021 FIFA Ballon d’Or gong.
Ronaldo, who is no stranger to the Ballon d'Or trophy after winning it two times, has picked Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema to win the prestigious accolade this year.
"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?"
“It’s a trophy that all the players want,” Benzema told TVE.
“Ever since I was little, I have been thinking about winning that award. If I am in anyway close, then it is because of my teammates,” the former FC Barcelona and Real Madrid striker concluded.
Coming up next for Los Blancos is UEFA Champions League action against Shakhtar Donetsk away in Ukraine.
