Yaya Toure: Liverpool's Mane should've won Ballon d'Or
He's not the first legend of the game, and surely won't be the last, to declare themselves disappointed that Sadio Mane wasn't crowned the best player in the world this month.
The former Man City and Barcelona player has said that Mane should have won the Ballon d'Or and been crowned the world's best.
Even Messi, who won the award, voted for the Liverpool winger and now Toure has added his name to a growing list that believe Mane is the best in the world.
Via the Mirror, he said: "To be honest he deserved to win the Ballon d'Or first.
"In Africa we don't see any better players than him.
"Did you see the votes? Did you see what he did in the last year, how many goals he scored, what he achieved with Liverpool?
"For me it is a shame when a team wins this trophy [the Champions League] and the winner of the Ballon d'Or is not coming from there."
The winger scored 26 goals and assisted 6 last season, in a standout season and has already scored 13, with 9 assists so far this season. He looks on course to be nominated again next year too.
