The 2018/19 season for European League Leagues and even the world will end this week. The names that are strong candidates for the Ballon d’Or 2019 winner have already begun to fly, and who do you think deserves to be the 2019 best player?
The names of players who are usually included in the Ballon d’Or category are predicted to appear again, namely Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. In addition, there is also the figure of Kylian Mbappe, who performed surprisingly this season with Paris Saint Germain.
It should not be eliminated just like that, it should be a consideration for Liverpool and Tottenham players who will compete in the Champions League final. A champion can bring Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Harry Kane or Son Heung-min to the 2019 Ballon d’Or championship list.
The defending champion, Luka Modrid, 2018 Ballon d’Or winner, has been playing poorly with Real Madrid this season. It’s hard to see the name of the Croatian player in the competition for the Ballon d’Or title for the 2019 edition.
Medhi Benatia, who is a former Juventus player, strongly supports Ronaldo to win Ballon d’Or. The coach of the Moroccan national team at the 2018 Russian World Cup yesterday assessed Ronaldo to have a tremendous impact on Juventus’ trip this season.
“Ronaldo? In my opinion, he deserves to win Ballon d’Or. Messi? He experienced an out-of-season season. He also deserves to win the Ballon d’Or but with Liverpool successfully defeating Barcelona [in the Champions League], I think that makes his chances diminish, “said Benatia.
Kylian Mbappe is one of the most favored of winning the Ballon d’Or in 2019. The 20-year-old has shown his capacity as a world-class player successfully becoming the deadliest goal machine of the season.
It was proven that Mbappe successfully became the top scorer of Ligue 1 with 32 goals. There is still one game left to add to the number of goals, Mbappe is preparing to add to the coffers of the goal because the French Ligue 1 final will be closed with Reims vs PSG this weekend.
“My favorite [to win Ballon d’Or] is Lionel Messi. Failure in the Champions League will have no impact. He is the number one in all fields, “said Mbappe.
