Legendary Barcelona forward said Cristiano Ronaldo will win him the Ballon d'Or award for 2016 because "he is handsome".
Spanish radio station Cadena Copa interviewed Hristo Stoichkov in order to talk about the Ballon d’Or. Former Barcelona forward said that Cristiano Ronaldo will win him the award for 2016. Stoichkov added two more names to this discussion: Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann and Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.

To Hristo Stoichkov’s point of view, Griezmann and Bale are unlikely to beat out CR7. "Griezmann is blowing everyone away and playing some spectacular football," Stoichkov said. But they'll probably give it to Cristiano Ronaldo again for being handsome!" About Bale’s chances, the Bulgarian considered he can only win if Wales "reach the final."
As a reminder, Cristiano Ronaldo was beaten by Lionel Messi in 2015, with other Barcelona forward Neymar finishing third. Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or three times whereas Messi has five triumphs.
