Francesco Totti has stated that Cristiano Ronaldo is more deserving of the Best FIFA Men’s Player award and Zidane deserves the coach gong.
Totti ranks Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar as football aliens, but concedes that the Portuguese has set himself apart from the duo.
The Roma legend and veteran midfielder says the accolades won for Madrid in the past year play a huge role in deciding who wins the personal accolade.
“We are talking about three footballing aliens,” he told FIFA.com. “I think that, in the end, Ronaldo is ahead of the others. He had an amazing season and also accomplished all of his goals with the most prestigious of teams.”
“I think Zidane is the favourite for the same reasons as Cristiano Ronaldo: he won everything the last season,” Totti explained, though he said that his compatriots had done “extraordinary jobs” at Chelsea and Juventus respectively.
