Ballon d’Or 2022: Super Eagles forward, Moffi names player to win award

Nigeria forward, Terem Moffi, has admitted Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema, will win this year’s Ballon d’Or award, although he wishes Sadio Mane should win it.

Both players were standout performers last season for both club and country.

Benzema scored 27 goals and provided 12 assists to help Carlo Ancelotti’s side secure the LaLiga title.

He also played a vital role to help France qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Meanwhile, Mane scored 16 Premier League goals and provided two assists as Liverpool finished behind eventual champions Manchester City.

The team, however, won the FA Cup and the League Cup.

“For the Ballon d’Or, it’s not up to me to say whether Benzema deserves it or not. But he won everything, he scored a lot of goals,” Moffi told Ouest France.

“Sadio Mane was also very successful, scoring very important goals. My favourite choice would go for my ‘African brother’, but I think Benzema should win, thanks to his performances with Real Madrid and the France team.”
