"I want to congratulate Cristiano because it was a fair winner.I've Got nothing more to say. Was a good year for the three (Ronaldo, Messi and Ribery) and therefore were here. I'm not complaining or apologizing for anything"' Said Messi after the ceremony.
Asked if he could have won the trophy if we not been injured so much time: "I do not know if it would have been different. It's true that I've been a long time out. I did not get well the semi-finals of the Champions this season and got injured early in the season. But I think it has nothing to do. Cristiano had merit. "
