(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BALLON D'OR 2019 WINNER, LIONEL MESSI, SAYING: "The truth is that it is a prize for my work.

It gives me strength to keep going and I don't need more recognition to keep working to accomplish something important as always as I have been doing with the group.

And I will try it (to win another Ballon d'Or) again in one year.

I hope I will be lucky." STORY: Lionel Messi described claiming a record sixth men's Ballon d'Or award on Monday (December 2) as "unimaginable", as he beat out Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and five-time winner Cristiano Ronaldo to bag soccer's most prestigious individual trophy.
