Ballon d’Or 2021: What will happen if I don’t win 7th award – Messi

Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Lionel Messi, has said he is not really concerned about winning the Ballon d’Or for a record seventh time.

However, the 34-year-old has admitted it would be “crazy”.

Messi has already won the prize more times than any other player and is the favourite for this year’s prize.

Speaking about his Ballon d’Or prospects, Messi told SPORT: “If I’m honest, I don’t think so [he can win it].

“My biggest prize was what I was able to achieve with the national team. After having fought and fought so much for that achievement, it was the best for all it cost.

“If the golden ball arrives it would be extraordinary for what it would mean winning one more. The seventh would be crazy. If not, nothing happens.

“I have already achieved one of my great goals. I am very happy for what happened and now that whatever has to happen, happens.”
