Inter Miami forward, Lionel Messi has revealed that he’s not bothered about winning the Ballon d’Or award.
Messi has already won it seven times in the past – more than any other player in history.
In a press conference ahead of Saturday’s Leagues Cup final against Nashville SC, the 36-year-old pointed out that he has won everything in football.
“I think I have said it many times during my career: the Ballon d’Or is a very important award because of what it means,” Messi said.
“I was lucky enough to win everything in my career, and the World Cup was what I was missing. That’s why now, after Qatar, I’m thinking much less about that award.
“Now I’m enjoying my moment. I’m not thinking about the Ballon d’Or. If it comes, fine; and if not, I am satisfied that I have achieved my objectives and…. now I have others with this club. We came here for this, to help the club win titles and on a personal level I’m also thinking about that,” he added.
