The diminutive midfielder revealed today while fielding questions from journalists after landing n Spain how his former coach, Zinedine Zidane, inspired him to clinch the award.

What he said:

“I’ll never forget when Zizou became Real Madrid’s manager in 2016, he called me in & told me what he expected from me, above all he saw me as a player who could win the Balón d’Or. When someone like Zidane tells you this, your morale goes up the roof.”
