Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or on Monday for the fourth time in his career, with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi in second place.
Conte believes the Real Madrid star was a worthy winner of the award, and hopes that a Chelsea player can lift the trophy in the coming seasons.
“I think he deserved this,” he said. “Cristiano and Messi are dividing these awards. For sure, in the future it will be another player to replace these two great champions.
“I hope so. We have fantastic players and I hope this can happen in the future.”
Currently, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are showing the kind of form that can make them win the award.
