While many believe the Senegal star and his club teammate Virgil van Dijk are among the favourites to win the prize, both seem to believe Messi is deserving of the award.

After winning the Uefa Champions League last season, the Dutch defender said he feels the Argentine should take home the prize come the end of 2019, and Mane has now shared a similar sentiment.

Asked if he would be annoyed about Messi winning the prize, the Reds forward was quick to respond.

"No," he said, according to GiveMeSport.

"I will recognise that he deserves to win it.

"For sure, everybody knows Messi, so I don't have to describe how good he is."
