Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has tipped Virgil van Dijk, to win the 2019 Ballon D’Or award next Monday, even though he admitted Lionel Messi is the excellent player of this era.
Van Dijk is one of the favourites for the award, after being named UEFA’s fine player.
Messi, but, stays firmly in rivalry for a sixth Ballon d’Or, although he had gained FIFA’s The Best award in September ahead of the Reds defender.
“If you deliver the Ballon d’Or to the fine participant of this era then you definately need to supply it constantly to Lionel Messi. That’s how it is.
“But in case you provide it to the excellent participant of last season, then it changed into Virgil van Dijk. I don’t recognize exactly how it’ll work however that is how I see it.
“The fine participant of all? That’s Lionel. Best participant of final season? That’s Virgil. We will see,” Van Dijk stated in line with Goal.
