Lionel Messi not winning Ballon d'Or would be 'madness,' says Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry says it would be "madness" if Barcelona star Lionel Messi is denied the Ballon d'Or trophy on Monday.

Along with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Barca teammate Neymar, Messi is a finalist for the award, which will be announced on Jan. 11.

Messi, who led his club to a historic Treble last season, has been named world's best player a record four times in his career. And Henry, who played with the Argentine from 2007-10, has declared it would be an injustice if the Blaugrana No. 10 did not add to his collection this time around.

"All we can do is enjoy what he does because what he is doing is not normal," Henry told Barca's official website on Thursday.

"We used to say that a player who got 23 to 25 goals in a season was an incredible striker, but Messi does that in three months.

"We had incredible players in that [Barca] team [that Henry played in] and whenever you did not know what to do, you always looked for Messi.

Lionel Messi has been named the world's best player a record four times.

"I think it would be madness if he does not win the Ballon d'Or. He deserves it because the team won another Treble.

"But what I do not understand is why Suarez isn't there."

Barcelona beat Juventus 3-1 in the Champions League final last year and look the early favourites to lift the trophy in 2016, which would make them the first side in the Champions League era to repeat -- a feat Henry believes will happen.

"In a single game, Bayern [Munich] can win it and you have to be careful with PSG too," he said.

"You never know what might happen, but I think Barca can win it again."
