Didier Drogba Names His favourites For Ballon D'Or Award

Newly-retired Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has named his top picks for the 2018 edition of the prestigious Ballon d'Or award.

In case you didn't know, Drogba announced his retirement from football earlier this month, having scored 164 goals in 381 appearances for Chelsea.

The 40-year-old also won four Premier League titles, the 2012 Champions League title, four FA Cups and three League Cups with the club.

Drogba has now named his favourites for the award, tipping Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe to win it.

Speaking to Goal at a Yokohama event in New Delhi, the two-time Premier League Golden Boot winner said, “It would be really nice to see Kylian Mbappe win it. It would be refreshing.

“But Ronaldo is still there, he's still a machine. He won all these Champions League trophies, changed leagues to go to Juventus, and he's scoring goals there. The man is just unbelievable.”

The winner of the award is set to be announced on December 3 in Paris.
