Pogba Reveals His Ballon D'Or Pick

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has named his choice for the next Ballon d'Or, and feels neither Lionel Messi nor Cristiano Ronaldo should be considered.

The Argentine and Portuguese superstars have dominated the award over the past 13 years, with the former boasting six Ballon d'Or titles to the latter's five.

However, Pogba feels his France teammate N'Golo Kante deserves to win the prestigious accolade this year.

"What I would like to say to the whole world is that the 'NG' we have seen in recent months has always been the same," he told Eurosport.

"We talk a lot about his performances but he has always been as good as ever.

"There was no Cristiano and Messi in the semi-final (of the Champions League), so it's good to see the performances of the midfielders or even the defenders.

"I said a long time ago that it would be appropriate, if Chelsea won, for him to win the Ballon d'Or. It would be deserved too.

"He's always performed well. I'm not surprised what he's doing, I'm just surprised that he's still doing it. He has always played matches like that."
