Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk after Tottenham: Leo Messi should win the 2019 Ballon d’Or

Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk was the MOTM vs Tottenham

Many Liverpool fans may have thought the prize should have gone to their goalie Alisson.

However, following the Champions League final win over Tottenham, it was revealed that Virgil van Dijk was the official man of the match in the UEFA showpiece.

Of course, the Liverpool centre-half also won the 2018-19 PFA Players’ Player of the Year award after the Reds finished the league season as runners-up behind Man City.

Will Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk win the 2019 Ballon d’Or?

Most will now expect Virgil van Dijk to be in the conversation to win the 2019 Ballon d’Or award.

However, will the defender actually win the prize?

For what it’s worth, the last defender tow in the Ballon d’Or was Italian World Cup winning captain Fabio Cannavaro way back in 2006.

The reigning Ballon d’Or winner is Real Madrid’s Luka Modric.

After the Champions League final against Tottenham, Van Dijk was asked about the 2019 Ballon d’Or.

The Liverpool defender revealed that he believes Barcelona’s Leo Messi should win the top award:

I think Messi is the best player in the world. He should win the Ballon d’Or.

So I’m not thinking of that. But if I win, I’ll take it. Messi should win it though. He is the best in the world, whether he’s in the final or not.
