Real Madrid star, Eden Hazard has named teammate, Karim Benzema as the player that deserves to win the 2022 Ballon d’Or.

Hazard believes Benzema deserves to win the Ballon d’Or after guiding Real Madrid to win the Champions League this year.

Benzema has established himself as a true legend at Real Madrid over the years.

The France international joined the Spanish LaLiga champions back in 2009 from his boyhood club Olympique Lyonnais and has never looked back.

“I think he [Benzema] deserves it. You know, there’s no doubt about it,” Hazard told ESPN.

“But I think he deserves it not just for that season, but for his whole career, you know? It’s like he’s been at the top for 15 years.

“Maybe he’s scoring more goals, which is why people just want him to win this Ballon d’Or, but I think he deserved it before, like five years ago.

“He’s our captain now and he’s also, like, a really good guy, you know? He’s not talking that much on the pitch, doing what he wants.

“He’s our leader. So, we just pushed him to go for the Ballon d’Or.”
