Ballon d’Or: Tacchinardi names player to win award

 

Former Juventus star, Alessio Tacchinardi, has tipped winger, Federico Chiesa, to win the Ballon d’Or in the next three or four years.

Chiesa has been impressive for Serie A giants Juventus so far.

He also played a key role in Italy’s Euro 2020 triumph this summer.

“For Chiesa, it will be extremely difficult to meet the expectations. I have heard talks about him winning the Ballon d’Or in three or four years: I agree,” Tacchinardi told Tuttosport.

“I see the same poison that Pavel Nedved had. He has enormous qualities; he dribbles left and right and can shoot with very little space.

“Last year, he touched the border of the top players. I believe he will get there this year and [Massimiliano] Allegri, who has always been a champion, can help him.”

Chiesa, the son of former Parma forward, Enrico, came through the academy system at Fiorentina.

The 23-year-old made his professional debut in 2016.
