Ballon D’Or: Gerrard names player that should win award

Steven Gerrard has backed defender, Virgil van Dijk to win this year’s Ballon D’ Or ahead of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Glasgow Rangers manager believes Van Dijk deserves the top individual prize 100% after he helped Liverpool to win the UEFA Champions League trophy last season.

He said: “I’m Messi’s number one fan, for sure. I love the player. Obscene numbers in his game in terms of assists and goals. I’m definitely a Messi fan, in the gang.”

“But if you talk about consistency from one player over a year, who wins the European Cup and is absolutely faultless in every performance, that means Van Dijk deserve to win the Ballon d’Or.”
