Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo says Diego Forlan deserves to win the Ballon d'Or.

Forlan has to be one of the favourites after winning the World Cup Golden Ball this summer.

"I think the Ballon d'Or, for obvious reasons, I have to take Forlan. Another thing is that if he does not win it, then it must go to a Spaniard. So I'd like Vicente del Bosque, since he is the best coach in the world, at least for another four years, to win the coaching award," said Cerezo.

"Forlan is fantastically well. There is no problem with either the coach or anyone else. Which player in the world has in three years won two Golden Boots and a Golden Boot and Golden Ball as best player of the World Cup?"
