‘Haaland, Mbappe Will Win Ballon d’Or One Day’  –Messi

Inter Miami superstar, Lionel Messi, has assured the duo of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe that their time to win the Ballon d’Or is around the corner.

Messi was speaking on Monday, after winning the award for a record-extending eighth time in Paris.

The 36-year-old finished in pole position ahead of Haaland and Mbappe in second and third respectively.

“Erling deserved it very much too, he has won Premier League, Champions League while being the top scorer of everything.

“This award could have been yours today too. I’m sure in the next years you will win it,” Messi said.

The former Barcelona forward spent 17 years with the Spanish club between 2004 and 2021 and also won the award in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2019 and 2021.

He was 22 years old when he won his first in 2009 and 14 years later has sealed a record eighth award.

Portugal and Al Nassr captain Cristiano Ronaldo is in second place with five awards but was not nominated for the 2023 edition, the first time he has not been up for the award since 2003.
