Will Messi win his 6th Ballon d’Or this year?

Barcelona legend Rivaldo has claimed that Lionel Messi deserves to win his 6th Ballon d’Or this year even if he doesn’t win the Champions League.

It’s certainly been an impressive year from the little Argentine.

Messi has shown his usual incredible goalscoring form, scoring 45 goals, but has had even more of an influence in the middle of the park this season.

He has also shown why he is one of, if not the best free-kick taker in football right now.

Messi has scored an impressive seven during the current campaign.

As well as that, Messi is currently the top Champions League and La Liga scorer.

Now, ex-Barcelona star Rivaldo has claimed Messi deserves to win his 6th Ballon d’Or even if he doesn’t win the Champions League.

‘It is an award he deserves because a world-class player like him must be a world champion’

When asked about Messi, Rivaldo claimed that Messi deserves to win the award ‘because a world-class player like him must be a world champion.’

“It’s impossible to describe Messi,” Rivaldo explained to Goal.

“I like him so much and I always say I feel so sad because he never won the World Cup with Argentina. It is an award he deserves because a world-class player like him must be a world champion.

“He has been scoring goals, giving assists and being the top scorer in La Liga for a long time and I think what he has been doing in the Champions League means his merits should be recognised.

“Even if he doesn’t win the Champions League, however, he already deserves the Ballon d’Or.”

While it’s not a foregone conclusion, Messi is certainly favourite for the Ballon d’Or right now.
