“I think Messi — it’s his turn,” the former England head coach said in an interview on Wednesday with FIFA.com, adding that “for the last four years” Messi and Real Madrid’s Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo “should have shared it.

Asked about the possibility about another player soon winning the prize, Keegan said Brazilian Neymar and his Uruguayan partner Luis Suarez in Barcelona could do it, reports Efe.
