"Messi? I'd give him the heavens when it would be possible, but it's not fair to get an award for something that did not deserve it just because of a marketing plan."
Sabella has a different opinion: Sabella has a different opinion: "I believe that he is been in the pantheon of the greatest. He was there before the tournament, and there is been some time. I think that deserves the Ballon d'Or and played a great World Cup. He was fundamental factor in our way to the finals. I truly believe that he deserves. "
Commenting on the (lack of) success.
"These players are warriors. They left their skin on the ground and gave their all. Squad played a great World Cup and players can look at each other and say we gave everything. It was a very equal match. They had more possession, but we had more opportunities. When you have such opportunities in such a match, you have to use them. We missed our efficiency, "added Sabella.
