Ronaldo should win more Ballon d'Or titles than Messi - Zidane

Zinedine Zidane believes Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to end up winning more Ballon d’Or titles than Lionel Messi.

The Real Madrid star was crowned the world’s best player of 2014 in January for the third time overall, leaving him one behind his Barcelona counterpart.

However, Zidane insists there is more to come from the 29-year-old and feels he can overtake the Argentine when it comes to winning the accolade.

“Ronaldo will win more Ballons d’Or,” he told reporters.

“What he is doing is from another planet. If this continues, he will improve even further and may end up winning more than Messi.”

The former Madrid star and France international had a lot to say about compatriot Karim Benzema, who he feels is a pivotal player for Los Blancos.

Zidane said: “He is another very important player. Sometimes it is discussed whether to change to him to a No.9 for Madrid and it’s wrong. All wrong.

“He is not a player who will score 60 goals a year like Cristiano, but thanks to his quality, he links up with everyone and always makes the moves that the team needs.

“Very few in the world can do that.”

The World Cup winner is currently coaching Madrid’s B team and admitted he could take over the first team at some point in the future.

“Me as the future first-team coach? We will see,” said Zidane. “For now, I’m with the Castilla and I’m fine. we will see what happens in the future.”
