Former Roma captain, Francesco Totti, has said that Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win the Best FIFA Men’s Player award, ahead of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar.
Totti described all three players as “footballing aliens”, but says that Ronaldo, who is the reigning Ballon d’Or winner, should take home the prize this year.
According to him, the decisive factor was Ronaldo’s ability to lead Real Madrid to domestic and European glory.
“We are talking about three footballing aliens,” he told FIFA.com.
“I think that, in the end, Ronaldo is ahead of the others. He had an amazing season and also accomplished all of his goals with the most prestigious of teams.”
