Chelsea star will win Ballon d'Or - Ramires

Published Add your comment

Chelsea midfielder Ramires believes his teammate Oscar will win the Ballon d'Or in the future.

The Brazil international feels his compatriot has all the tools to become a winner of club football's most prestigious individual award, which has been won by Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi on the previous four occasions.

Oscar turned 22 in September, and Ramires believes he possesses the work ethic and required determination to reach the very top.

"What really impresses me is how Oscar is always looking to improve," Ramires told the club's magazine. "He has got everything to be very, very successful - and he is so young!

"However, he is also so mature on the pitch; his play in the No.10 role is what you expect from an experienced player, not someone so young.

"He has got everything to win the Ballon d'Or one day. I am absolutely sure he will get there."

Oscar joined Chelsea from Brazilian club Internacional in 2011 for a reported £25m fee.

He is now an established first-team regular at Stamford Bridge, where he plays alongside the similarly talented Eden Hazard and Juan Mata.

Oscar has scored 17 goals in 77 appearances for the Blues, while he has netted eight goals in 26 matches for next summer's World Cup hosts Brazil.
