Messi will beat my record - Platini

Michel Platini believes Leo Messi will beat his record of three Ballon D'Or trophies.

The Argentine is in the running for a fourth successive award, which would beat the three given to Platini, Johan Cruyff and Marco van Basten.

Im sure he will surpass the record, said Platini at UEFA headquarters. I dont whether it will be this year or next, but he will get the fourth and overtake Cruyff, Van Basten and me.
