Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has reportedly claimed that the 2019 Ballon d’Or award should go to a Champions League finalist.

This means the award should not be given to Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentine football star Lionel Messi because their clubs are not in the Champions League final.

Messi and his Barcelona teammates were sent out of the 2018/19 Champions League by Premier League side Liverpool while Juventus were beaten by Ajax.

However, Messi and Ronaldo remain favorites for the honor, but Aguero believes the award should be presented to a player featuring in this season’s UEFA Champions League final.

The 2018/19 Champions League final will be played between Liverpool and Tottenham in Madrid on June 1.

“I think someone who is in the Champions League final should win it,” Sergio Aguero explained according to Sportskeeda.

Ronaldo and Messi have each won the Ballon d’Or award five times before before Real Madrid star Luka Modric ended their dominance in 2018.

Modric steered his country as captain to the final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia before losing against France.

Meanwhile, Aguero has since clarified on social media saying Messi will always be his pick for the Ballon d’Or award.
