"For me, there’s only one player who deserves the award and that’s Leo Messi," Matthaus told FIFA.com
"He has returned to an excellent level with his club and he didn’t just win the Champions League but also did a league and Cup double with Barça,Trophies have been a bit harder to come by with Argentina though.
"Despite that, his goal scoring feats speaks for itself – as do his brilliant performances and all of the triumphs he has gained with Barça. He possesses extraordinary class and is constantly showing the uniqueness of his game.
"For me, it would be a huge surprise if the trophy doesn’t go to him."
