“For the Ballon d’Or, it’s not up to me to say whether Benzema deserves it or not. But he won everything, he scored a lot of goals,” Moffi told Ouest France.
“Sadio Mane was also very successful, scoring very important goals. My favorite choice would go for my ‘African brother’, but I think Benzema should win, thanks to his performances with Real Madrid and the France team.”
