CAIRO – 17 October 2017: Ex-footballer Francesco Totti analyzed the three finalists who will compete for the “Best” award for FIFA.com, which will be delivered later this year.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar are the three candidates for the award, and in the opinion of the Italian ex-international, the Portuguese player of Real Madrid is the favorite.
"I have to say that we have always respected each other on and off the pitch, but I think Ronaldo is above all others; he has had an impressive season and he has scored all his goals with the most prestigious team there is,” says Totti.
As for the prize for best coach, the Italian also believes that the coach of Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidan, will get it.
"Despite the extraordinary work of Conte and Allegri, I think Zidane is the favorite for the same reasons as Cristiano Ronaldo, because he won it all last year," said the Italian.
Finally, the choice for the best goalkeeper is no secrets for Totti. "Gianluigi Buffon has a lot of chances to win the best goalkeeper," he concluded.
Goalkeepers have a lot of influence on the game, but they do not know what they should be.
