Messi Deserves Ballon d’Or Crown -Pochettino

PSG manager, Mauricio Pochettino has backed Lionel Messi to win a record-extending seventh Ballon d’Or award.

Messi is joined on the 30-man shortlist by PSG teammates Gianluigi Donnarumma, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

However, after Pochettino chose the 34-year-old as his preferred winner, there was a reaction among the squad.

Mbappe and Neymar both have eyes on the individual prize too, which neither have ever won.
