Rivaldo: Lionel Messi Will Win More Ballons D'Or!
FC Barcelona and Brazil legend Rivaldo has backed Argentina superstar Lionel Messi to add to his five Ballons d'Or, claiming he has more quality than Cristiano Ronaldo.
The former Blaugrana winger believes the 30-year-old is technically superior to his Real Madrid counterpart, and backs him to win even more Ballons d'Or in the future.
"The quality of Leo is different from that of Cristiano. The Argentine has more quality with the ball, although Cristiano is also very good and very professional," Rivaldo told Mundo Deportivo.
"Messi has everything to get more Golden Balls.
"I think he'll end up with more trophies because he still has three or four years left at his best level."
The Argentine has won five Ballons d'Or over the past 10 years, while Ronaldo has also won the accolade five times.
