Gerard Pique Picks Between Lionel Messi & Cristiano For Ballon D’Or
FC Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has picked who he believes is favourite to win the 2017 Ballon d’Or between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The Argentine and Portuguese have shared the last nine Ballon d’Or trophies between them, with Messi winning five of them and Ronaldo winning four.
Pique believes the Real Madrid man is likely to win the next one this year, though he insisted his teammate is the best to have ever played the game.
"Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Champions League and the League. So he is a favourite," Pique said to Qatar television show One.
"Lionel Messi is still considered the best player in history, though, and then there are other options."
Ronaldo won the UEFA Champions League and La Liga last season, but was outscored by Messi, who won the Copa del Rey with Barca.
