Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is confident that his flagship player, Cristiano Ronaldo will win his sixth Ballon d'Or award.
Allegri, who recently won the prestigious 'Panchina d'Oror' award, as the best Italian Serie A coach last season, certainly has a myriad of experience in training top soccer players. He is also very confident that CR7 will be the best player.
"I have coached big players like Ronaldinho, Seedorf, Pirlo, Nesta, Buffon, Ronaldo and several other players. Ronaldo is very focused on training and hard work, he is very impressive, "said Allegri, to sports news media in Italy, La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"Ronaldo has made us grow. He is different from the others, he is an outstanding goalscorer. He deserves to win the Ballon d'Or. I hope he will win it,
The quality of Ronaldo does not need to be questioned, it is proven that he has won Ballon D'Or five times. He first got his title in 2008, while still in uniform in Manchester United. Then moved to Real Madrid, Ronaldo always looked stunning and won the next four titles and became the defending champion in this event.
But as time went on, he and Lionel Messi were believed to be difficult to regain the award held by France Football, even though they both appeared moncer last season.
Some players such as Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann, are the strongest candidates for the Ballon d'Or winner because they were able to bring the French national team to the 2018 World Cup championship, and Luka Modric who was considered capable of overthrowing the glory of Ronaldo and Messi.
