Barcelona midfielder Pedri says he'll always value team trophies over individual titles.
Pedri won the 2021 Kopa Trophy prize during the Ballon d'Or event in Paris last week.
"[Ballon d'Or] is the greatest of all the trophies," Pedri told France Football.
"But, before winning the Ballon d'Or, we have to focus on collective titles, which are the most important. Winning a World Cup for your country must be incredible.
"I am very happy with the Kopa Trophy. It rewards the work done throughout the year and it's incredible to be the winner. It's just the beginning, I hope.
"I am proud to succeed two monsters like Kylian Mbappe and Matthijs De Ligt. They are great players, and the future is theirs.
"Besides, we are not always used to seeing midfielders being rewarded. Xavi [Hernandez] and [Andres] Iniesta, for example, have never won the Ballon d'Or."
