Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has backed Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi to win this year’s Ballon d’ Or, ahead of Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Messi is still in the European competition, after Barcelone saw off Manchester United.
Barca are also currently on course to secure another La Liga title, while a Copa del Rey final against Valencia also lies in wait.
Speaking on who will win this season’s Ballon d’ Or, Mourinho told Russia Today, “Messi is experiencing a fantastic season.
“Now that Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus has been eliminated from the Champions, the Golden Ball is waiting only for the Argentine.”
