Speaking in an interview with France Football, Juventus attacker Cristiano Ronaldo discussed the 2018 Ballon D’Or and who he viewed as his major contenders this year.
“The same as usual, even if I don’t know if Messi will be on the podium this time. So, let’s say Salah, Modric, Griezmann, Varane, Mbappé – the French in general because they are world champions. But I will wait and see if all these players are still at the top in 10 years, like Messi and I have done, and like we continue to do. Still there, on the podium, since more than 10 years.”
