Brazil legend, Roberto Carlos has named Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric as the favourite player to win this year’s Ballon d’Or award.

Recall that Modric was shortlisted for the 2018 Ballon d’Or award last month.

Carlos, a former Real Madrid star, also named the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Neymar and Robinho as the players with the best freestyle skills in world football.

“Luka Modric is the favourite for me to win this year’s Ballon d’ Or, now he’s physically better and he’s going to be at his best again,” Carlos told Marca.

He added, “Ibrahimovic, Neymar and Robinho are the players with the best freestyle skills in world football, but Beckham, Zidane and Ronaldo are also good.

“During a preseason with Real Madrid in Austria, Zidane, Ronaldo and I practised doing tricks… and Ronaldo did things we couldn’t do, freestyler stuff.”

“Our training was open to the public and every movement was cheered by the people who were in the stands.”

The 2018 Ballon d’ Or award will take place on 3rd December 2018 in Paris.
