Real president Perez reveals his picks for the next Ballon d’Or

Real Madrid president Perez picks a Real player other than Judd Bellingham to win the Ballon d’Or.

“Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed the player he believes will one day win the Ballon d’Or,” the British publication Sports Bible reported on Jan. 1 (ET).

Real Madrid defeated Athletic Club 2-0 in the 30th round of the 2023/24 La Liga season at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, Spain, on Jan. 1 (ET). Hodriguez led the way with a multi-goal performance.

He opened the scoring in the seventh minute when Brahim Diaz made a great change of direction on the right flank and found Hodriguez on the other side, who dribbled past two opponents before finishing with a powerful shot.

He wasn’t done there. In the 27th minute, on the counter-attack, Jude Bellingham played a pinpoint pass to an unmarked Hodrigo on the left side, who once again beat a defender to the ball, this time to the near post to make it 2-0.

With the win, Real moved eight points clear of second-place Barcelona with eight games remaining in the league, and the victory was all the more significant because it came without Real’s ace, Vinicius.

The match was attended by Real president Florentino Perez, who paid particular attention to Hodriga’s performance. After the game, Pérez said, “Hodrigo will win the Ballon d’Or.”

Meanwhile, coach Carlo Ancelotti explained in an interview with Real Madrid TV that he and his staff were “convinced” that Hodriga would “do something in this match. “It could be that he likes this position more than the others. I think he can work very well with 토토 Vinicius and I think they are already working very well together, and he was the most important player of the match.”

“He played very well,” Ancelotti said in his press conference afterwards. He made the difference, he could have scored very early on. He has a very high quality in his play, and that’s what he needs to do. Now you can say that he is better on the left, but he is good everywhere.”

Hodriguez has earned the trust of Ancelotti and has already scored 10 goals and provided five assists in 30 league appearances this season.
