Maurizio Sarri claims Lionel Messi's six Ballon d'Ors is annoying

With Lionel Messi getting one better of Cristiano Ronaldo in the Ballon d'Or, Juventus head coach Maurizio Sarri has insisted that the situation is annoying.

Messi lifted the Golden Ball for a record sixth time in December, moving him one ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo who is yet to win the award since 2017.

Despite having a relatively successful year, winning the Serie A and captaining Portugal to the inaugural UEFA Nations League title, Ronaldo finished third at last year's awards.

In an interview with Sky Italia, Sarri revealed that Messi's six Ballon d'Ors is annoying, "I would like to help Cristiano win the sixth Ballon d'Or first.

"It's really annoying thinking that someone won more [Ballons d'Or] than him. I think about him and I think helping him, it is my goal and the goal of the team. It is right for him."

Ronaldo is having a superb season at Juventus, scoring 14 league goals in 16 games and is currently above Messi in the European Golden Shoe race.
