Video: ‘I’m Sick of Giving It to Messi’ – Patrice Evra Wants Anyone but Lionel Messi to Win Ballon d’Or

The nominees for the Ballon d’Or have been announced, and the favorite to win the award is Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi once again. Nonetheless, other candidates are hoping to challenge the 34-year-old. 

Chelsea duo N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are two names that could take the award home, and if it were up to former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, one of these players would win the Ballon d’Or over Messi.

Evra was on Amazon Prime Sports France, where he admitted that he’s tired of seeing Messi win the award year after year. 

“In my opinion, this Ballon d’Or is for Kante or Jorginho… I’m sick of giving it to Messi,” Evra said. “What did he win last year? Okay, the Copa America [with Argentina]. With Barcelona, what did he do?”

  1. In my opinion ballon d,or are already fixed function with fifa. Messsi always buy votes. So even if he messi retire from football he will still win this award. Fifa always use one reason or the other to give him the awards. Copa America this time. Why?. What about leagues, champions league, euro cup and euro league. Fifa is corrupted.
