Aguero denies CR7, Messi claims

English Premier League

Manchester City superstar Sergio Aguero has sought to clarify his stance after allegedly stating neither Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi deserves the Ballon d'Or.

For the first time in a decade, the five-time winners of football's most coveted individual honour was pipped to the award.

And Aguero was attributed to quotes that suggested the 2019 winner should come from either UEFA Champions League finalists Liverpool or Tottenham.

However, he quickly took to social media to deny the claims that went viral.

“I do not like having to go out and clarify but when words are attributed to me that I never said, I have to do it,” Aguero wrote on his official Twitter account.
“To be clear, and I always answered the same, while Messi continues to play, and especially how he has played this season, he deserves to win the Ballon d’Or.”
