The most awaited award in the football world will be decided today, between Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Cristiano Ronaldo. Arsene Wenger has never been a fan of the award but has given his opinion on who would win it.
According to the Independent he said, ‘I’m a big enemy of the Ballon d’Or,’ Wenger said. ‘Who will win it? You know as well as I do that it will be Messi. Barcelona won everything this year.’
The award is decided between the best players of the last 12 months. Barcelona has Lionel Messi and Neymar nominated, while last time’s winner Cristiano Ronaldo is also in the run. There has been a debate about Barcelona’s Luis Suarez deserving the nomination instead of Ronaldo but there have also been opinions in support of Madrid’s player.
However, there is no doubt that the favourite this year is none other than Messi.
