Ronaldo, a former Real Madrid striker, described Benzema as the best forward in the world of football.
Asked who he believes is worthy of the Ballon d’Or this year, Ronaldo was quoted by Marca as saying, “Without a doubt, my candidate for the Ballon d’Or is [Karim] Benzema.
“The best forward in the world, [an] incredibly high level for 10 years and a champion above all. Worthy of the award, don’t you think?”
Benzema was included in the 30-nominees for the 2021 Ballon d’ Or last week.
The France international will rival Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi, Chelsea’s Jorginho, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and among others for the Ballon d’ Or this year.
The winner of this year’s Ballon d’Or ceremony will be announced on November 29, 2021.
