Meunier Picks Varane for Ballon d'Or Ahead of Neymar and Hazard.

Thomas Meunier has backed Raphael Varane to win the 2018 Ballon d'Or.

The Belgian reckons the Champions League and World Cup winner deserves the accolade ahead of Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and PSG duo Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

"If I had to choose between Eden Hazard and Neymar to win the Ballon d'Or, I would pick Raphael Varane," he said as Omnisport quoted.

"The forwards are always thought of, but he [Varane] won the World Cup and the Champions League. He is a regular, I like to watch him play and he is at the top.

"There is a logic to respect: Varane meets the criteria and is a favourite."

On Hazard, he added: "I think Eden Hazard at this moment at the same level Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. They perform well every week. It's very hard to make a comparison."
