Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff believes Xavi deserves to win the 2010 Ballon d'Or.
"I prefer Xavi. For his age and for his exceptional year, for Xavi it is now or never," said Cruyff.
"Every team needs a conductor, with speed and poise. Xavi has this all in one. And always with the ball. So I opted for Xavi. For his ability to build plays on his own."
