‘Messi deserves everything beautiful in this world’ – Eto’o reveals his Ballon d’Or verdict

 The PSG superstar claimed his seventh Ballon d’Or crown on Monday, a few weeks after he clinched the GOAL50 prize

African legend Samuel Eto’o has defended Lionel Messi’s emergence as the winner of the 2021 Ballon d’Or - a record seventh win.

The 34-year-old forward pipped Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski to the crown while Chelsea's Jorginho and Real Madrid's Karim Benzema finished in the third and fourth spots respectively.

In the year under review, he led Argentina to Copa America glory and he also won the Copa del Rey with Barcelona before he clinched La Liga's top scorer award for the eighth time after scoring 30 goals in 35 games last season.
