Van Dijk helped lead the Reds to the Champions League trophy this year, as well as captaining the Netherlands to the Nations League final.

At the Golden Ball, the Reds trio also faced several big names, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, candidates for the election.

"I'll give it to a Liverpool player", Hazard told Le Parisien.

Liverpool's Champions League winners Mohamed Salah, Alisson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino are also on the shortlist but their manager says Van Dijk is the worthiest recipient.

"It would be nice if he had it".

'Or Momo [Salah], who is one of my chums. "It would be a good thing for both African and English football", he added.

Only Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed the award as many times, with Real Madrid's Luka Modric ending the pair's dominance with his first Ballon d'Or a year ago.

"Having the Ballon d'Or would make me super happy, but I do not have an obsession", he said.

Curiously, Messi then soon posted a video on Instagram in conjunction with Otro, in which he was shown with his five other Ballon d'Or trophies from 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

"Maybe I'll never have it".

"I still have time to win it, I'm in no hurry, it's not something that haunts me".

Hazard has made 12 appearances since joining Madrid from Chelsea in the summer, scoring one goal and making four assists.

In contrast, long term rival Cristiano Ronaldo has managed 33 goals, however nearly a quarter of those (7) came in the space of two games against worldwide minnows Lithuania.

Barcelona are now on the top of group table tally with 2 wins and 2 draws in four games and they will look to finish with the same.

"I knew that at Real I would be criticised more than at Chelsea, but that's not a problem".
