Pogba backs Ronaldo for Ballon d'Or ahead of Messi
Posted on: July 14, 2016, 09:17:22 PM
Paul Pogba has backed Cristiano Ronaldo to win the Ballon d'Or due to his title-winning form with Real Madrid and Portugal.

The Madrid star scored the winning penalty as rivals Atletico were beaten in the Champions League final via a shootout, before guiding his country to a first ever major tournament win in Euro 2016 this summer.

Ronaldo watched long-time rival Lionel Messi pick up his sixth Ballon d'Or in January, ending his two-year streak to boost his overall tally to three.

But Pogba feels Ronaldo deserves to be awarded for his exploits thus far this season

"You have [Lionel] Messi, you have Ronaldo. Honestly, I like them both. [Antoine] Griezmann has had an amazing year," he told ESPN Deportes.

"For me, it's Cristiano Ronaldo [who should win], because he won the Champions League and Euro 2016."
