Messi backing Barcelona pal Iniesta for Ballon d'Or

Lionel Messi would be happy to see Barcelona teammate Andres Iniesta win the Ballon d'Or.

Messi broke Gerd Muller's record of 85 goals in a calendar year after scoring twice at Real Betis last night.

Asked about the Ballon d'Or, a prize Iniesta is also a finalist for, Messi said: "If Iniesta wins it, it will be totally deserved and it would make me very happy. It's a title for the whole team."
