Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland has been asked to name his best players for 2021. Below is what he has to say;
“You have to say Robert Lewandowski is number one. And then for me you have Karim Benzema, he’s also amazing, but Leo Messi is also outstanding – so Benzema and Messi share second and third place,” he has said, as quoted by ESPN FC.
Despite the praise from colleagues and other coaches, Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, unfortunately, did not finish inside the top 3 either in the Ballon d’Or or FIFA The Best in 2021.
However, it is believed by many that he’s among the top contenders for the Ballon d’Or this year.
This term so far, the Frenchman has played 28 games for Real Madrid, contributing with 24 goals and nine assists.
Meanwhile, Haaland does not consider Liverpool’s forward Mohamed Salah among the top 3 football players in the world right now despite the Egyptian finishing 3rd in the FIFA the Best Male Award for 2021.
