Former Barcelona captain Xavi is sure that Cristiano Ronaldo may have the edge in this year’s Ballon d’Or race.
Recall that the Real Madrid will reportedly be at least among the final three nominees. He last won the trophy in 2014. This year Ronaldo fired his side to UEFA Champions League glory before captaining Portugal to victory at Euro 2016.
Last month former Barcelona star Xavi said that anybody who likes football would consider Lionel Messi to be better than Ronaldo.
However, the 36-year-old has now admitted: “Cristiano has the numbers to win this year’s Ballon d’Or, having won the Champions League and the Euros. But I also think that it’ll be very competitive, because Messi will be there, of course.”
