Real Madrid captain and defender, Sergio Ramos, believes if Fabio Cannavaro was able to win a Ballon d’Or, Virgil van Dijk can also do it.

According to Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk could beat Cristiano Ronaldo for the Ballon d’Or.

“I don’t know, but if Fabio Cannavaro won it then why not?” Ramos told AS.

“You have to keep the dream you had as a child so that it can happen. He had a great season.”

The Los Blancos captain added: “We always talk about Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, but the possibility that another player can win it is a beautiful thing.”

“If he wins, I’ll congratulate him. He had a very good season.”

He was also asked if Cristiano Ronaldo was the best teammate he ever had.

Modric adamant on keeping his place in the team

Luka Modric is seeing a fall from grace after winning the Ballon d'Or for his efforts in the 2017/18 season, where he led Real Madrid to the Champions League.

“It’s a very difficult question,” he added to Gazzetta Dello Sport.

“I played with so many champions, but Cristiano was certainly one of the best in the history of Real and football.”

“I also wouldn’t forget the Brazilian Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Zidane, Casillas, Raul,” he concluded.
