Wenger backs Messi for Ballon D'Or

Arsene Wenger believes Leo Messi deserves to win the Ballon D'Or.

The Frenchman thinks that the Argentine's remarkable goalscoring exploits mean he is the stand out candidate.

Its very difficult. For the class, Messi [should win it], Wenger told Arsenal's official website.

Hes scored 76 goals in one year. It looks just outrageous to me. Therefore it would be one thing to reward something exceptional."
