Bayern Munich honorary president Franz Beckenbauer believes Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo will win the Ballon d'Or.

But he insists Franck Ribery would be a more worthy winner.

"Ronaldo has put everything in one basket, he has all the ambition and characteristics to win the Ballon d'Or. Although Ribery has been the best throughout the year, it would not surprise me if in the end Ronaldo wins it," he said.

"Nothing is normal in these votes."
