Lionel Messi won the 2021 French Ballon d’Or on Monday, November 29, making it his seventh career Ballon d’Or, making him the first and only player to do so. Messi now has two more D’or balls than Cristiano Ronaldo. Lionel Messi is finally getting his hands on the international trophy with Argentina after winning the Copa America earlier this summer by beating arch-rivals Brazil in the final.
The PSG superstar was the top scorer, assist and player of the tournament alongside Neymar at the Copa America. As for the club level, Messi won the Copa Del Rey with Barcelona. However, things have not been as smooth as in the past few years. Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski and Chelsea’s midfield conductor Jorginho have had exceptional years with their respective clubs and countries.
But in the end, the Argentinian player was the best. Lionel Messi was quick to mention Lewandowski as the clear winner of the 2020 Ballon d’Or which has been canceled by French football because of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. He also asked French football to give the Polish scorer the trophy he really deserves.
However, this award-winning former Barcelona striker does not match a number of current and former players, more so after his longtime rival Cristiano Ronaldo finished outside the top five in 6th place in Ballon D’or Rankings for the first time since 2010. There will always be a debate between the Messi and Ronaldo fan bases and the leading experts as to how one of them deserves it more than the other. Ronaldo’s former teammate, Kroos reported saying ‘It’s totally not worth it.’
Twitter reacts to Cristiano Ronaldo’s comment on an Instagram post
Cristiano Ronaldo commented ‘Factos’ on a random Instagram post which outlined all the stats and reasons why Ronaldo should have won it and it’s a shame the Manchester United forward not even in the top 5 of this year’s Ballon D’or chart. Check out the article below.
After the comment, fans went wild on twitter in response to it and the Portugal international was heavily trolled following his comment.
