Liverpool’s success in the 2018/2019 Champions League won much praise, not least from Real Madrid striker Eden Hazard.
According to Hazard, Liverpool players deserve the Ballon d’Or trophy. There are at least three players who are championed to win the Ballon d’Or 2019 trophy.
Jurgen Klopp’s men also top the standings with 37 points, eight points ahead of their closest competitor, Leicester City.
“I will give it (Ballon d’Or) to Liverpool players. Mane, Salah or Van Dijk deserve it,” Hazard was quoted as saying by Goal International.
“It would be better if he had it. Or Momo (Mohamed Salah), who is my friend. That would be good for African football and English football.” Hazard continued.
At the Ballon d’Or award, the Reds trio also had to compete with several big-name players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling who entered as candidates.
