Lionel Messi and former Real star Cristiano Ronaldo has dominated the award while Luka Modric was the last player from Los Blancos to win the award back in 2018.

“Sure, all the time, from my childhood, but it’s not something that drives me crazy," Benzema said on his YouTube account.

"You always think of the Ballon d'Or when you are a professional footballer and when you are competitive.

“I never try to define myself by my playing position, as a number nine or not a number nine, as 10 or 11; I am a football player and I try to be the best player in the world.”
