Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola is eager to see the Ballon d'Or rumours over.

Guardiola has admitted concerns with his three players Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta up for the award.

He is keen for the ceremony to come and go after two months of speculation as to which of his players will take the award.

"It has been a long time talk about this," he said. "I am looking forward to it, as all three are happy to be there. But it's been two months and I hope it ends now."
