Former Real Madrid legend believes the Portuguese attacker will keep on dominating the Fifa award after winning it for the third time in January.

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

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.”
