Iker Casillas thinks that Virgil van Dijk or Lionel Messi should be awarded the Ballon D’Or ahead of his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

This year’s Ballon D’Or ceremony will be held on December 2, 2019 at Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris, France.

Ahead of the ceremony, Casillas took to Twitter and revealed his thoughts on who should win the award.

“Van Dijk was the best player for UEFA, Messi was the best for FIFA. Imagine if Cristiano wins the Ballon d’Or? It would seem to me that the guidelines we follow in football to give prizes do not have much logic,” the former Madrid goalkeeper tweeted.
