Rivaldo predicts who will win Ballon d’Or award

Former Brazil striker, Rivaldo, has said Lionel Messi deserves to win a sixth Ballon d’Or.

Messi is currently tied with rival Cristiano Ronaldo on five Ballon d’Or but is a big favourite to win it this year.

The Argentine won the LaLiga title again with Barcelona, but were dumped out of the Champions League after an incredible Liverpool comeback at Anfield.

Rivaldo, however, feels Messi has done enough to win the prize.

“In my opinion, the Ballon D’Or of this season is Messi for what he has done.

“He didn’t win the Champions League, but because it is an individual prize he scored a lot of goals, important goals,” he said according to Squawka.
