Senegal and Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane has admitted he would vote for FC Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi ahead of his teammate Virgil van Dijk for the 2019 Ballon d'Or.

Many are tipping Dutch centre-back Van Dijk to win the prestigious individual accolade ahead of the likes of Messi and Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Mane, who has also been tipped to win the prize and was Messi's first choice for FIFA's The Best Men's Player 2019 award, was asked recently if he would return the gesture by picking the Argentine as his favourite to win the Ballon d'Or.
