Mbappe names 5 players to win ballon d’Or, snubs Messi | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f

France forward, Kylian Mbappe has named his potential Ballon d’Or winners for 2018.

The player also put himself in contention for the individual prize in his five-man shortlist, alongside former Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Croatian, Luka Modric and France teammate, Raphael Varane.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward, however, found no room for Barcelona’s Lionel Messi on his shortlist.

If Mbappe wins the Ballon d’Or, he will have to break a decade-long monopoly of the prize by Ronaldo and Messi.

Mbappe told France Football when asked to pick out the likely winners, “For the favorites, I will say Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, Raphael Varane… and me.

“To complete the list, I think I would put myself in there too.”
