Hazard picks Messi for Ballon d'or
Ex-Chelsea and Real Madrid playmaker Eden Hazard has spoken out on the deserved winner of the award.
“The Ballon d’Or? It would be illogical not to give it to Messi, the best player in the sport's history, a year where he wins the World Cup, he said.
“Who won the World Cup? This is often how things happen. Besides, Messi played a very important role in the victory, so I think Leo will win the Ballon d'Or."
