FIFA President Sepp Blatter has come up with a revelation that Argentine forward Lionel Messi doesn’t deserved to win the Golden Award which is awarded to the Best Player of the 2014 World Cup.

Blatter in an interview before unveiling the 2018 World Cup logo in Moscow, Russia, “I think the decision to give Messi the Golden Ball was incorrect. I was surprised when I received the committee’s decision. They told me they had only looked at 10 of the players who took part in the final.”

There were a few eyebrows raised when the four time Ballon d’Or winner was handed the honours inspite of his team lost in the final to Germany and Messi himself had a relatively little impact in the finals when compared to other members in the squad.

It was expected that one among Toni Kroos, Manuel Neuer and Arjen Robben to win the award. Germany defeated Argentina in the finals of the 2014 Brazil FIFA World Cup.
