Inter Miami star, Lionel Messi, has assured Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe that their time to win the Ballon d’Or is around the corner.
The Argentinian international also added that Erling Haaland deserved the Ballon d’Or very much as well, after winning the Premier League and the Champions League, among other accomplishments last season.
“Haaland and Mbappé will win the Ballon d’Or one day.
“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.
Messi said this on Monday after winning the Ballon d’Or award for a record-extending eighth time in Paris, finishing ahead of Haaland and Mbappe in second and third respectively.
