German legend Oliver Khan believes Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo will win the Ballon d'Or.
The former goalkeeper, speaking with FIFA.com, believes Bayern Munich No1 Manuel Neuer will not be voted in.
Khan explained: "I think that in international terms – and it's not just Europe that votes – it's still not widely understood that a goalkeeper can be in contention for an award like this.
"I experienced this first-hand; you can't dispute that it's an issue. It'll probably be another battle between Messi, who's had a strong season, and Ronaldo, who has scored another hatful of goals.
"I think Ronaldo will win again, a man who calls himself the world's best player – and who can blame him?"
