Somali national team manager, Said Abdi Haibeh, has said France midfielder, N’Golo Kante, deserves to win this year’s Ballon d’Or and not Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.

Messi is an annual favourite to win the individual award.

Although Barca endured a poor 2020/2021 campaign, the 34-year-old still finished the season with 33 goals and 13 assists in all competitions.

It puts Messi in prime position to claim the prize for a record seventh time.
