Ballon d’Or: Who do the footballers think is the best player in the world (voting for yourself counts!)

“I am certainly worthy of the Ballon D’Or. I think that Kaka and Ronaldinho have nothing more than me. I’m at their level and would not look bad alongside them.” – Zlatan Ibrahimovic. (Quote here.)

“The Ballon d’Or would be nice, I won’t deny it.” – Alessandro Del Piero. (Quote here.)

“Cristiano (Ronaldo) is a great player, but Messi is above everybody at the moment. He does things not just in training but during matches that no one has ever done before.” – Samuel Eto’o. (Quote here.)

“Ronaldinho is the best player in the world.” – Lionel Messi. (Quote here.)

“I am the first, the second and the third best player in the world. But there are other good candidates like Kaka, Messi and Fernando Torres.” – Cristaino Ronaldo. (Quote here.)

“I would give [the Ballon d’Or] to [Sergio] Aguero.” – Lionel Messi. (Quote here.)

“Fernando [Torres] would be my selection. He has scored a lot of goals and won the Euros with Spain. Ronaldo is also a very good player but I choose Fernando.” – Rafa Benitez. (Quote here.)

“I think it’s right that Cristiano Ronaldo wins the Ballon d’Or because he is a great player.” – Ricardo Quaresma. (Quote here.)

“Messi is the best. What he does is from another world. He is exceptional. After watching Arsenal against Manchester United, I insist Cristiano Ronaldo is one thing and Messi is another. There is no comparison. Messi deserves to win the Ballon d’Or this year.” – Thierry Henry. (Quote here.)

“[Iker Casillas] is hugely talented, is a great goalkeeper and a great person. And it would be good if a goalkeeper won it. We shall see what happens, but I hope that he wins the Ballon D’Or, he deserves it.” – David Beckham. (Quote here.)
