Sergio Ramos has not been well liked by Liverpool fans for some time after his antics in the 2018 Champions League final, but the Real Madrid star has given his backing to Reds centre back Virgil van Dijk over the Ballon dOr. Van Dijk beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to the prize of UEFAs Best Player at the recent Champions League draw.

 And Ramos has backed the Dutch defender to once again come out on top ahead of five-time winners Messi and Ronaldo.

  As a defender, its harder. It seems as though its not just Messi and Cristiano [now]. It seems theres a route opening [for others]. Messi and Ronaldo have dominated the award between them with the duopoly taking home the Ballon dOr every year between 2008 to 2017. 

Virgil van Dijk was named UEFA Defender of the Year and UEFA Player of the Year last monthLuka Modric, a beaten World Cup finalist with Croatia, was the winner last season after guiding Real Madrid to a third consecutive Champions League under Zinedine Zidane.

 But Van Dijk is in a special moment in his career having lifted the European Cup himself back on June 1 in Madrid and he added the UEFA Super Cup earlier this season by beating Chelsea in Istanbul. The FIFA Best Awards will take place at the Teatro all Scala in Milan on September 23.   RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next
