Barcelona star Xavi shrugs off gong chances

Barcelona star Xavi has shrugged off his chances of winning this year's Ballon d'Or.

Xavi is among the favourites for the gong.

"It's not one of my objectives [winning the Ballon d'Or]," he said. "When I was young I dreamed of playing for Barca and winning La Liga and the Champions League and playing for Spain.

"I never dreamed of winning the Ballon d'or. But I thank my colleagues and the coaches that are saying I'm a potential winner."
