If it's for the best player of all, then it's Lionel.

"I would give it to a Liverpool player". The 32-year-old Messi helped Barcelona to the Spanish league title in 2018/19, scoring 51 goals across all competitions.

"I would give the Ballon d' Or to a Liverpool player", Hazard told Le Parisien.

Everyone realises that as well because last season we saw how it turned quickly.

Only Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed the award as many times, with Real Madrid's Luka Modric ending the pair's dominance with his first Ballon d'Or a year ago.

However, some football fans around the world may not like the Barcelona maestro winning the French award as defender Virgil van Dijk is also one of the favorites to win the award after defeating Messi's Barca to go on and win the UEFA Champions League. It would be attractive if he won it.

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe believes he doesn't deserve to win this year's Ballon d'Or but thinks he could clinch the honour as his career progresses.

"Or Momo [Salah], who is one of my friends". It would be good for African football and English football, "mentioned Hazard".

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk now stands as a marginal favourite, with Messi breathing down his neck after a solid season with Barcelona. He also mentioned that if there was a trophy for the best player of this generation, Barcelona's star Lionel Messi would win it hands down.

"We can play better, I think we have an wonderful team, most of the best players in the world, so we know we can perform better but we're winning, first in the most hard group in the tournament".

Liverpool is the team with the most players nominated however with seven, those being Mane, Van Dijk, Alisson, Mohamed Salah, Georginio Wijnaldum, Roberto Firmino, and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
