This Won't Be Messi's Last Ballon D'Or - Barcelona President

Josep Maria Bartomeu, the president of Barcelona,  says that Lionel Messi will return to Zurich in the years to collect another Fifa Ballon d’Or.
Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has been named the 2015 FIFA Ballon D’or winner ahead of Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and and club teammate Neymar.

Bartomeu said: “Messi winning the Ballon d’Or is a great
triumph for Barcelona, our supporters and mainly, Leo himself. To win his fifth Ballon d’Or means a lot. It means that the world of football recognises that the best player of all time is Leo Messi. And because he is still young, I do believe this will not be his last time here winning the trophy.”

“I would have chosen all players from Barcelona in the ideal starting XI team of Fifa, but I am not the one who votes. Anyway, I missed Suarez there. I think he along with Neymar and Messi have marked a milestone in football. He should probably be here enjoying the Fifa Ballon d’Or party. He is a player that will keep doing great things with Barcelona,” he added.
