Hazard: One of Liverpool trio Salah, Mane or Van Dijk deserve Ballon D'Or

Real Madrid star Eden Hazard says one of Liverpool trio Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Virgil van Dijk deserves to win the Ballon D'Or this year.

All three are nominated for the award after helping the Reds to Champions League glory last season.

"I'll give it to a Liverpool player," Hazard told Le Parisien. "Mane, Salah or Van Dijk deserve it.

"If Sadio had won the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal, there would have been no debate.

"It would be nice if he had it. Or Momo, who is a friend of mine. It would be good for African football and for English football."
