The Ballon d’Or will be awarded on the 12th of October to the best player of last season.
In an interview which appeared on Mundo Deportivo, Florentino Pérez revealed that he is convinced that Karim Benzema will win the award:
“Benzema has already received the UEFA Player of the Year award and in the next few days, he will be awarded the Ballon d’Or. Nobody doubts it.”
The Real Madrid president also reflected on the past season:
“In sporting terms, last season we experienced memorable matches, which reflected Madrid’s DNA, that fight until the end. We beat PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City. I would also like to congratulate Liverpool for their great performance. I would also like to thank our players, legends and some of them, who have already won five Champions League titles.”
“We have a squad to keep dreaming about all the challenges that lie ahead. Real Madrid does not allow complacency or relaxation. After winning the European Super Cup, we have won all the matches we have played, being the only club in the top five leagues to have achieved this. This is the way forward,” he added.
