Messi and Ronaldo have dominated football over the past decade, claiming five Ballons d'Or each since 2008.  

The Argentine, who lifted the award for the first time in 2009, believes there are several players who could now challenge himself and Ronaldo for the accolade.

"There are many great players around today who can win the Ballon d'Or," he told World Soccer magazine.

"In recent years, there have just been two, but now players like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Luis Suarez can compete."
