Rivaldo: Messi should win this year's Ballon d'Or
Former Barcelona player Rivaldo has claimed that Lionel Messi should win this year's Ballon d'Or.
The Brazilian explained that the Blaugrana captain deserves the award despite not winning the Champions League title.
"In my opinion, Messi should win the Ballon d'Or this year for everything he has done," Rivaldo said.
"He didn't win the Champions League, but it's an individual prize.
"He has scored many and important goals and I think he deserves it."
