Real Madrid attacking midfielder, Isco insists there is only one person deserving of the Ballon d’Or, and it is his teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portugal international forward is one of 30 nominees named to win the award. And he is more deserving after leading Madrid to a UCL and Liga double before winning the Euros with Portugal.
Isco admits it will be a dream to be among the top three for the price, but has backed Ronaldo to claim the gong.
“Cristiano has to win it, there’s no question about that,” he said, speaking ahead of Madrid’s Champions League clash with Tottenham. “It’s very difficult to be up there, it would be a dream.
“There are 30 nominees and a lot of them from Real Madrid. If the team is doing well, there are more chances to win individual prizes. I’m very happy about how things are going and I hope to continue like this.”
