Reports revealed that France football told Messi that he’s won the 2021 Ballon d’ or award mainly due to his heroics at the COPA American in the summer.
According to Portuguese television channel RTP,Ballon d’ or number seven will be held aloft by Messi at a ceremony in Paris on November 29th. The Argentina superstar has been the peoples favourite and has received accolades for many months.
However it certainly would be something of shock if another player wins the award .Messi deserves winning in the eyes of many. He has scored goals at clubs and international level in 2021.
There are some people who believe that Messi is not worthy of winning ballon d’ or as they point to Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski who scored far more goals than anyone in 2021
