Xavi Deserve More for Featured Than Messi in Ballon d'Or
Although not denied Messi remains one of the best in the world, but Cruyff had other reasons for preferring Xavi. According to him, Messi had to succumb after twice elected.
In addition, Xavi is also very central role behind the success of Barca. Messi is only considered to be more flashy than Xavi because of its position as an interpreter rapped instead of 'servants' played by Xavi.
"Choosing the best players must be out of a sense not because of the position. Messi the best in its category and everything he does is remarkable. He also has won on several occasions," said Cruyff.
"But if Messi has won twice, Xavi right now," added the man from the Netherlands as reported by Tribal, Tuesday, November 29, 2011.
Since 2010, the Ballon d'Or award initially for Europe's best players have been merged with the world's best player award as the new name "FIFA Ballon d'Or".
And Xavi has always made it into the top three in the last two years. Whereas last year, Barca player in three places after Andres Iniesta also entered the top three.
