Barcelona for ward Lionel Messi
raised eyebrows when he said in passing
today that he did not know where he
would be next year.
Messi was asked during a press
conference ahead of the Ballon D’Or
Player of the Year ceremony if he
wanted to finish his career at Barcelona
or at Argentina’s Newell’s Old Boys in
his hometown of Rosario.
“ I’m not sure what ’s going to happen,
whether I’d go to Newell’s,” he said.
“I don’t know where I’ll be next year
although I’ve always said I want to end
my career at Barcelona but...nobody
knows what the future holds.”
Messi said that he had denied asking
for coach Luis Enrique to be replaced
or that he is seeking an exit from his
“I haven’t asked for anything to stay
here because I have never wanted to
go anywhere else,” Messi told Barca’s
tv channel after Sunday ’s 3-1 La
Liga win over champions Atletico

Portugal for ward Cristiano Ronaldo
won the FIFA Ballon d’Or award for
the second year running and the third
overall today after a prolific, trophy-
filled year with Real Madrid.
He was voted ahead of Barcelona and
Argentina for ward Lionel Messi, his
bitter rival, and Bayern Munich and
Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in
the annual poll run jointly by soccer’s
governing body and France Football
Joachim Loew was voted Coach of
the Year after leading Germany to the
World Cup title in Brazil. He finished
ahead of Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti
and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone in
Ronaldo netted 51 goals in 47
appearances last season as Real secured
a record-extending 10th Champions
League title and won the King’s Cup.
His tally included 17 goals in the
Champions L eague, a record for a
single edition of a Europe’s elite club
Since then, he has added the Club
World Cup title to his collection, has
scored a stunning 26 goals in 17 La Liga
matches and looks set to looks set to
smash the biggest total for a season in
Spain’s top flight of 50 scored by Messi
All that was enough to overlook
a disappointing World Cup where
Portugal went out in the first round and
Ronaldo mustered only one goal.
However, he still became Portugal’s
all-time leading scorer and his goal
haul for his country stands at 52 in 117
Messi, by contrast, inspired Argentina
as they reached the World Cup final,
where they lost to Neuer’s Germany.
Ronaldo first won the award in 2008,
when it was run solely by FIFA, and he
finished ahead of Messi.
Messi won the award four times
in a row from 2009 to 2012, with
up on three occasions, before the
Portuguese reversed the trend last year.

LeBron James has a new team this
season but one thing remains the same
his jersey is still the most popular
among basketball fans.
James, who returned to the Cleveland
Cavaliers this season after four years
with the Miami Heat, topped the
NBA’s most popular jersey list for a fifth
consecutive year, according to figures
released by the league yesterday.
Stephen Curry (Golden State
Warriors) rose five spots to number two
on the list, which is based on overall
sales from adidas and NBAStore.com
over the final three months of 2014.
Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City
Thunder), Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles
Lakers) and Derrick Rose (Chicago
Bulls) rounded out the top five.
James, who returned to his original
No 23 Cavaliers jersey after wearing
No 6 in Miami, also helped the Cavaliers
claim top spot on the team merchandise
list for the first time.
Chicago are second on the team
merchandise list, followed by the
Warriors, Lakers and reigning NBA
champion San Antonio Spurs.

This lovely little girl is 3-4 months
old. She has not had the best start
in life but is rapidly turning the
corner. She is microchipped. Holly
will need a family with lots of
patience and time to spend with
her bonding and building trust.
My name is Taylor. I am 10 years
old and I’ve been looking for my
forever home for a very long time.
I have been told I am quite
different from other cats and will
need an extra special person to
understand me and know that
I am a very loving girl and will
make a wonderful family member.
What makes me special is that I
DON’T LIKE to be petted or stroked.
I think hands are scary. BUT I LOVE
to smooch and purr and be close
to people. Sometimes I even turn
myself inside and out !!!! I am
microchipped, vaccinated and
spayed and now just need a home.
