UNCOVERED: PSG star Messi's voting for Kopa Trophy
PSG star Lionel Messi's voting for the Kopa Trophy has been revealed.
Barcelona midfielder Pedri was named the U21 Player of the Year on Monday. The youngster was rewarded for his performances at the Blaugrana last season, as well as his outing in the 2020 European Championship with Spain.
Infobae says Messi gave Pedri three points, as he placed him first in the ranking, followed by his current PSG teammate Nuno Mendes, who received two points from the Argentina captain, and Borussia Dortmund prodigy Jude Bellingham, who got one.
Pedri gave a special mention to former Barca teammate Messi in his speech after receiving the Kopa Trophy to express his gratitude towards his former teammate.
"I want to thank Barcelona, the people who have supported me, the captains like Messi," said Pedri.
"Thank you for helping me."
