Ramos backs Messi for Ballon d'Or triumph after first PSG start together

 The defender backed his new team-mate to claim the individual prize after many years as rivals

Sergio Ramos says that he wishes Lionel Messi "all the luck in the world" ahead of this week's Ballon d'Or ceremony, and hopes that his new Paris Saint-Germain team-mate can bring home the honour once more.

The former rivals-turned-clubmates at the Ligue 1 giants helped inspire a comeback win against Saint-Etienne this weekend on the Spaniard's full debut for the club, with the Argentine notching up a hat-trick of assists in a 3-1 win.

Any previously shielded mutual respect looks to have broken free of its confines between the two players now however after their link-up in the French capital - and as Messi goes for a record seventh victory in the contest to be crowned the world's greatest player, Ramos is fully backing him to succeed once more.
