Lucescu named the player who will win the Ballon d’Or in 2022
Dynamo head coach Mircea Lucescu is sure that this year the forward of Real Madrid and the French national team Karim Benzema will become the owner of the prestigious Ballon d’Or award.
“I haven’t seen a team more successful than this (Real Madrid) since I’ve been here. If they continue this extraordinary journey, in which they got all the successes in the last minutes, they will win the trophy,” said Lucescu.
Mircea was also asked if Real Madrid star Karim Benzema would be named the winner of the Ballon d’Or in 2022, and the Dynamo coach shortly replied: “Yes!”
Recall that many experts called Karim Benzema one of the key contenders for the Golden Ball in 2021 as well. However, then Lionel Messi won the trophy, Robert Lewandowski was on the second line, Jorginho was on the third, and Benzema got only the fourth place in the poll.
