Messi’s route to seventh Ballon d’Or
When we talk about the excitement in football outside the green rectangle. It may be limited to announcing the winners of major prizes such as the Ballon d’Or and the award for the best from FIFA.
The first spark, on Monday evening, kicks off at the announcement of the winner of France Football magazine’s Ballon d’Or. During a ceremony at the Theatre du Châtelet, in Paris.
Destiny chooses Messi
Lionel Messi, not an exceptional performer last season for Barcelona and Argentina. But he remains the leading favorite to win the Ballon d’Or, and many French and Spanish sources even confirm that the flea has already crownes, separating him from the seventh of the Ballons d’Or only a few hours before the ceremony.
If we want to assess Messi’s performance last season compared to the rest of his career, we will probably find that he is within the 3 worst seasons of the flea, especially since the Argentine has shown physical impression by virtue of his aging, losing part of his usual rhythm in previous seasons.
But Messi gives a bonus of fate. That his Ballon d’Or rivals had various crises that saw them fail to go after him with the race for the best in the world.
For his part, Messi increased his fortunes, having won the Copa America with Argentina, for the first time in his career and also saved a sleazy Barcelona from a zero-season exit, when he led him to the crown of the King’s Cup.
