The FIFA eWorld Cup 2019 winner will attend The Best FIFA Football Awards where he will be very close to his idols: Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
He not only won 250,000 in prizes but also the chance to attend The Best FIFA Football Awards on September 23 in Italy.
And there, he will have a chance to meet two of his idols: Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
“The previous [eWorld Cup] winners who have been to The Best before me have said the trip is even better than the prize money,” he told FIFA.
“You get to meet football’s biggest stars and be part of a great day.”
“I’ll be nervous meeting Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. They’re two of the biggest stars. Most people in the world know who they are. I’m really looking forward to it,” he added.
“I think it should be between Messi and Ronaldo.”
“Van Dijk had a great year and he was by far the best defender, but I think it’s between those two. For me, Messi was a little bit better last year so I would give him the prize,” he commented.
“I love his style of football – I think everyone does – and I love him as a person as well. Whenever he gives interviews, everyone wants to hear what he says.”
“He always says great things, he’s always smiling. He’s like Dirk Nowitzki [former NBA star] in that sense – always happy and bringing people joy,” he continued.
“He won the Champions League so I think he deserves it the most. As a German, I’d love to see Klopp win it.”
