Ballon D’Or: Steven Gerrard names player that should win award

Ballon d'Or 2019 winner leaked?

However, Van Dijk, who was as short as 2/5 to win the Ballon d'Or less than a week ago, has drifted out to 6/1 to lift the most coveted individual prize in football and in the process become the first defender to win the award since Fabio Cannavaro in 2006.

Virgil van Dijk should win the 2019 Ballon d'Or, says "Messi's number one fan" Steven Gerrard.

Messi, meanwhile, played a key role in Barca's successful La Liga defence, but a shocking Champions League semi-final defeat to Liverpool combined with a Copa del Rey final loss to Valencia overshadowed his individual contribution.

"Yes, 100 percent", answered Gerrard when quizzed whether if Van Dijk deserved to win the 2019 Ballon d'Or as quoted by Goal. I love the player.

"I'm Messi's number one fan, for sure".

Van Dijk failed to win Premier League but enjoyed a prosperous season under Jurgen Klopp as he was an integral part of the indomitable Liverpool squad that won Champions League.

The Argentine faces stiff competition from his close rival Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool's centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

Messi, meanwhile, is now preparing with the rest of the Barcelona squad for a crucial trip to Wanda Metropolitano to face Atletico Madrid in La Liga on Sunday night.
