Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi believes team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win the Ballon d’Or.
Ronaldo, 33, is a contender to win the individual honour for a record sixth time after leading Real Madrid to a third straight Champions League crown earlier this year.
The superstar forward made the move to Juventus in July and team-mate Matuidi backed Ronaldo to win the Ballon d’Or on Monday.
“Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win it,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“He always wants to win and that makes the difference.”
