Former Real Madrid and Barcelona Brazilian football legend, Ronaldo, has said Karim Benzema “deserves the Ballon d’Or” award.

Benzema scored a hat-trick as Carlo Ancelotti’s men beat Paris St-Germain on aggregate before scoring another hat-trike to help Madrid beat Chelsea 3-1 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.

The player also scored in the return leg that ended 3-2 with Real Madrid winning 5-4 on aggregate. The player at his age has done very well for both club and country and so the former Brazilian star player believes the Real Madrid striker should be given the Ballon d’Or award this season as no attacker has done what he has done so far.
