Barcelona coach Vilanova backing Messi for Ballon d'Or

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova is backing Lionel Messi for the Ballon d'Or.

Messi struck a superb hat-trick in victory at Deportivo La Coruna.

"He doesn't deserve it for what he did the other day, but he deserves it for what he's done all year long," said Vilanova.

Vilanova explained that he won't campaign for Messi, but noted that "no one can do what Messi does."
