Ballon d’Or 2024: ‘His numbers very attractive’ – Cafu on player that should win award

Former Brazil national team captain, Cafu, has named Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior as the player that deserves to win this year’s Ballon d’Or award.

The former AC Milan right-back said the number of goals Vinicius scored last season was very attractive.

Speaking about the 23-year-old’s performances in the past seasons, Cafu said (via Madrid Universal):

“I don’t just see him as a contender but also as a Ballon d’Or winner.

“For everything he has done in previous seasons and, above all, for what he has done this season, in the Champions League final, also by winning La Liga with Real Madrid by scoring a lot of goals.

“Vinicius’ numbers are very attractive, so I think he deserves it. ”

Vinicius scored 24 goals and provided 11 assists in 39 appearances across competitions for Real last season.
