Barcelona striker Thierry Henry says teammate Lionel Messi deserves the Ballon d'Or this year. "Messi is the best. What he does is from another world. He is exceptional," said Henry.

He continued: "After watching Arsenal against Manchester United, I insist Cristiano Ronaldo is one thing and Messi is another. There is no comparison. Messi deserves to win the Ballon d'Or this year."
