Sergio Aguero backs Lionel Messi for Balon d'Or
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed fellow Argentine Lionel Messi as his pick for the Ballon Balon d'Or.
Aguero took to Twitter to refute claims that he had earlier stated that the winner of the award should be someone playing in the Champions League final this year.
I don't enjoy having to clarify my statements – but when I'm quoted for things I haven't said, it must be done. I'll spell it out then. No one other than Messi will be my pick for the Balon d'Or as long as he keeps on playing – particularly if he plays like he did this season.— Sergio Kun Aguero (@aguerosergiokun) May 14, 2019
Messi has enjoyed another succesful goal scoring season in La Liga, topping the goal scoring charts with 34 goals and 13 assists to his name.
The 31-year-old is also the top scorer in the Champions League this season with 12 goals.
