Barcelona ace Iniesta not thinking about Ballon d'Or

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta insists he's not thinking about the Ballon d'Or.

Iniesta is now a prime contender after winning the Player of the Tournament for the Euros.

"I'm not competing with Messi to win the Ballon d'Or, or Cristiano, or Xavi, or Casillas... I'm not voting. It's not about competing with his 82 goals. I was named the MVP without scoring any goals. It's a privilege to be among the greats," Iniesta told Barca's website.

"I always have to hope of winning and achieving as much as possible, but this is something extra for me. I can't control it, let other people decide. Talking about this is just a waste of time. From here to January a lot of things will be said, the truly important thing is that I continue to enjoy playing the sport and seeing my people happy..."
