Paris Saint-Germain star, Lionel Messi has said that he doesn’t think about winning his 7th Ballon d’ Or because his biggest prize was to achieve success with the Argentine national team.
Messi was last month nominated among a 30-man shortlist for the 2021 Ballon d’ Or.
The former Barcelona captain won the Copa America with Argentina this year.
When asked about his thoughts on potentially winning his 7th Ballon d’Or award this year, Messi said “Achieving a Seventh Ballon D’Or would be an extraordinary madness.
“If I am honest with you, I don’t think about the Ballon d’Or. My biggest prize was to achieve success with the national team.
“Having fought and fought so hard for that achievement was the ultimate goal. A seventh would be crazy. But if not, no problem.”
Messi has won the Ballon d’Or for a record six times in the past.
The ceremony to award the 2021 Ballon d’Or will take place on November 29.
