London, Jan 11 (IANS) Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger on Monday picked Barcelona forward Lionel Messi to win the Ballon d’Or 2015 after admitting that he personally was a big “enemy” of the prestigious football award.
“I’m a big enemy of the Ballon d’Or,” Wenger was quoted as saying by goal.com.
“It is certainly Messi who will win it, although I’m not a big fan of it,” he said.
Messi is a favourite to win the award this year for the fifth time after helping Barcelona grab hold of five trophies in 2015.
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi’s Barcelona teammate Neymar have also been nominated for the award which will be announced on Monday.
