Ballon d’Or: Mbappe names player that should win award this year


Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe has said his new team-maye, Lionel Messi, deserves to win the Ballon d’Or this year.

According to him, Messi is the best player in the world.

Mbappe made this remarks following PSG‘s Champions League 3-2 victory over RB Leipzig last night.

Messi has already won the Ballon d’Or six times in the past and is a strong contender for the 2021 edition.

“Why did I give the penalty to Messi? That’s what teammates do,” Mbappe told RMC Sport.

“He’s the best player in the world.

“He let me take the second penalty. Unfortunately, I missed [it].

“It’s a privilege to play with him, and it would be fully deserved if he won the Ballon d’Or.”

The winner for this year’s Ballon d’Or will be announced on November 29.
