Messi or Haaland? Pep Guardiola shares his pick for the Ballon d’Or.
Former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has been asked who he believes should win this year’s Ballon d’Or.
After spectacular seasons, Lionel Messi and Erling Haaland are the two favorites for the Golden Ball.
Haaland completed the triple with Pep Guardiola’s City, while Messi won the World Cup for the first time in Qatar.
All of this makes Pep’s decision difficult, so here’s what he had to say:
“The Ballon d’Or must be divided into two sections.” One for Messi, then look for the rest. So, yes, Haaland should win.
“He scored 50 million goals while we won the treble.” Messi’s worst season is the best for the rest.”
It has already been announced that Messi will receive the award for the eighth time after winning the World Cup. The winners will be announced at the end of the month during a ceremony.
