Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid, has named midfielder, Karim Benzema, as the candidate to win the Ballon D’Or this year.
Perez believes that Benzema deserves the top individual prize, because so far this season France international has been impressive.
Benzema has scored 21 La Liga goals for Real Madrid this season.
The 32-year-old scored a brace as Real Madrid beat Villarreal 2-1 on Thursday night to win the championship of La Liga ahead of Barcelona and Perez insisted that this season he never saw any player as good as Benzema.
“Benzema should win the Ballon d’Or,” Perez told El Transistor when asked who should win the 2020 Ballon D’ Or.
“I have not seen any player have as good a year as him.”
Meanwhile, Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, took home the Ballon d’Or in 2019, edging Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.
