Lille star Hazard: Better candidates for Ballon d'Or than Barcelona's Messi

Lille star Eden Hazard is no great fan of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi. Hazard says Messi doesn't deserve to win the Ballon d'Or this season.

The Real Madrid target explained: "To be clear: he (Messi) is the best but I think he lacks the elegance of Zidane or Platini.

"Many players deserve it (Ballon d'Or) for their entire careers like Thierry Henry and Ryan Giggs. Last year, Wesley Sneijder deserved it."
