Ballon dOr: Kylian Mbappe names the player that deserves to win the award

Kylian Mbappe selects the player who deserves to win the Ballon d'Or.

Kylian Mbappe, a forward for Paris Saint-Germain, has predicted that Lionel Messi will win the Ballon d'Or this year.

Mbappe feels Messi is the finest player in the world and believes he deserves to win the Ballon d'Or in 2021.

Following PSG's 3-2 Champions League triumph over RB Leipzig last night, the France international acknowledged as much.

Messi has won the Ballon d'Or six times already in his career.

The former Barcelona great was just nominated as one of the 30-man shortlist for the 2021 Ballon d'Or.

"Why did I award Messi the penalty?" Mbappe told RMC Sport, "That's what teammates do."

"He's the greatest player in the planet."

He gave me the opportunity to take the second penalty. Regrettably, I failed to notice [it].

"It's an honor to play with him, and if he wins the Ballon d'Or, it'll be well-deserved."

On November 29, the winner of this year's Ballon d'Or will be announced.
