Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo picked up UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award on Thursday to put alongside the Ballon d’Or and FIFA’s Best awards which he currently holds.
Ronaldo is aware his dominance can’t last for so long and he has tipped Chelsea’s Eden Hazard as one of the players to succeed him as the best player in the world.
After picking up the UEFA award, Ronaldo was asked by reporters to name the possible successors to his throne.
“A very good question. I see some with great potential: Asensio, Mbappe, Neymar, Dembele, Hazard, Rashford … and some others. In the next generation there are at least 10 players with very, very great potential,” said Ronaldo as quoted on Daily Mail.
