Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero believes Lionel Messi is the only player that deserves to win the Ballon d'Or.
The Barcelona record-breaker has been shortlisted for the Golden Ball alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Andres Iniesta.
But the Argentina international has claimed that his fellow countryman is clearly the best player in the world.
“The Golden Ball has to go to Leo,” he told Ole. “He scored more goals in 2012 than anyone in history!
“For all he does for Barcelona and Argentina, he clearly deserves this award.”
The former Atletico Madrid also revealed his own ambition to win the coveted trophy one day.
“Every player dreams about being the best player in the world,” he said. “The dream is to win the World Cup and the win the Ballon d'Or.
“To achieve that would fill me with happiness.”
