With a cream of football stars vying for the converted trophy,   former Inter Milan and Barcelona forward,  Eto’o believes Messi is his favorite to win the Ballon Do’or this year.

Eto’o told Marca, “I’d always [present the Ballon D’or  to Lionel] Messi, who is like a little brother to me”.

“As a person and a player, I hold him in high regard.  I’ve watched him grow up and have a special affection for him. He is still in my opinion, the best in the world.

The four time African player of the year also choose Karim Benzema as a second choice should Messi be taken out of the picture.

“If we take Leo, there are a few others I like, like as Benzema”, Eto’o continued.

“He’s one of my favorite players [Benzema] carried the squad on his shoulders after Christiano left [ Real Madrid].

Eto’o played with Messi for closed to five seasons at Barcelona,  winning the UEFA champions league twice in 2006 and 2009.
