Fabio Cannavaro believes Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta deserves to win the Ballon d'Or.

The retired Italy captain was named both European and World Player of the Year in 2006 after leading his side to the World Cup.

For the first time this year, the two trophies have been combined into a single Ballon d’Or.

“Even if there are 23 players in the running, the winner has to be a Spaniard,” insisted Cannavaro.

“It would be logical, as they won the World Cup, which is the decisive tournament for this award.

“I would give it to Iniesta, as he impressed at club level with Barcelona and also scored the goal that gave Spain the World Cup in the Final.
