You deserve your Ballon d’Or, last year everyone agreed that you were the winner and France Football should give you your Ballon d’Or. I hope they can give it to you. You have to have it at home because you deserved to win it.”

Let him say what he wants, I’m not interested (…) The words I said at that moment came from the heart, that’s really how I felt. I said he deserved the Ballon d’Or the year before, because for me he was the best. But the year I won it was not the best. But he takes it as he wants.»
