Maradona thinks Messi doesn't deserve Golden Ball

Argentina's striker Lionel Messi has been awarded the Golden Ball as the World Cup-2014's Most Valuable Player. Messi netted four of Argentina's eight goals scored at the World Cup and assisted on another one.

But legendary Argentine soccer player Diego Maradona thinks Messi doesn't deserve the Golden Ball.

"The marketing services gave him what he didn’t deserve. This is not fair. I saw that he didn't want to accept it," Maradona said in an interview.

In Maradona's opinion, the Golden Ball should have gone to Colombia's James Rodriguez who scored five goals in five matches at Brazil's World Cup.
