Lampard: Ronaldo deserves world player gong

Frank Lampard feels Cristiano Ronaldo would be a worthy recipient of the FIFA World Player of the Year award. Both midfielders were named on the shortlist for the prestigious gong this week, with Manchester United's Ronaldo the favourite following the Red Devils' Premier League and Champions League triumphs.

"I'll be honest," Chelsea and England star Lampard told the Daily Express. "It looks like it is going to be Ronaldo.

"Anyone who scores 42 goals in a season, performs the way he did and wins the league and the Champions League is going to be hard to beat.

"Ronaldo said it the other day and he's right. The World Player of the Year award goes to a top, top player and it goes generally to those that have won things as well.

"Normally top players win things and when you look at Ronaldo, Kaka, Fabio Cannavaro, Ronaldinho - the recent winners - they have all been successful in their teams."
