The Ballon d’Or ceremony is set to take place in just over a month on November 29 and everyone has their picks for who should win the award.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has listed his top 3, leaving out 2 of his own star players in Neymar and Mbappe.
Pochettino told El Partidazo de COPE: “The Ballon d’Or should go to Messi without any doubt.
“And if I didn’t coach Messi, I would still say Messi. I answer with my heart. I always say what I feel.
“On the podium with him would have to be Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano.”
Lionel Messi is now at PSG playing for the Argentine, so his answer is hardly a surprising one!
