Cannavaro backing Real Madrid defender Ramos for Ballon d'Or

Fabio Cannavaro believes Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is capable of winning the Ballon d'Or.

Former Real and Juventus defender Cannavaro is a former winner himself.

"He'll definitely be in with a chance of winning the Ballon d'Or if he has a good World Cup. If Spain enjoy a good campaign, I'm convinced he'll be nominated," said the Italian.

"People say that defenders win matches but forwards sell tickets. But there are centre-backs like Ramos who both win games and prompt fans to buy tickets because they want to see them play."
