Thierry Henry changes his mind on his 2021 Ballon d’Or winner

Legendary Thierry Henry has chosen Lionel Messi as his preferred candidate to win the Balon d’Or following his Copa America triumph which according to him puts him ahead of the others in the Ballon d’Or race.

Henry believes that players like Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski, Jorginho, and N’golo Kante also deserve to win the prestigious award although he feels Messi’s achievements stand out.Information Guide Nigeria

He said:

“I cannot say it like that because I will always say that a French guy should win it because I’m biased and I would have loved Benzema to win it. But in reality, Lionel Messi will, I think, because of his finally winning the Copa America with Argentina.”

Thierry Henry was runner-up to the award in 2003 and third in 2006. He previously backed fellow Frenchmen N’Golo Kante and Karim Benzema to win.

He added that Messi and Jorginho were also viable winners:

“Let’s be realistic, I hope it can be him [Karim Benzema] or N’Golo Kante. Robert Lewandowski would have been elected in 2020 if it had not been cancelled. We can also talk about Jorginho because he won everything [Champions League and Euro 2020]. And there is Leo [Messi] who finally won the Copa America.”
