Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is sick of Lionel Messi winning the Ballon d’Or as he believes N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are more deserving of the award.
The Argentinian has previously won the award on six separate occasions between 2009 and 2019.
Along with Messi, Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is also considered to be one of the favourites to win the Ballon d’Or. This comes after he helped Chelsea and Italy win the Champions League and European Championships this year.
As reported by The Metro, Evra suggested that the Ballon d’Or should go to Kante or Jorginho:
“In my opinion this Ballon d’Or is for Kante or Jorginho… I’m sick of giving it to Messi,” Evra said.
“What did he win last year? Okay, the Copa America. With Barcelona what did he do?”
