Real Madrid player, Eden Hazard has stated that Liverpool players, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Virgil Van Dijk are fit to win this year’s Ballon d’Or.
The Belgian and former Chelsea player tipped them ahead of Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi and Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo.
All three Liverpool players are among the 30-man shortlist for this year’s Ballon d’Or award.
“I would give the Ballon d’ Or to a Liverpool player,” Hazard told Le Parisien.
“Mané, Salah or Van Djik deserve it. If Sadio had won AFCON with Senegal, there would have been no debate.
“It would be beautiful if he won it. Or Momo (Salah), who is one of my friends. It would be a good thing for both African and English football,” he added.
