Why should Leo take the Ballon d’Or?
Since 2016, the Ballon d'Or has again been presented exclusively by France Football - FIFA now has its own award. The best football player is chosen by sports journalists from all over the world. Why are we so sure that they will mostly vote for Leo Messi?
Usually, those who are involved in voting for Ballon d’Or, they are to look at the performance of a football player for both at the club and the national team levels, evaluate their influence on the teams, trophies won and records broken.
It is hard to overestimate the influence of Messi on Barcelona's game - even knowing the drawbacks, Leo is the main point-earner, who gets things done for the team almost alone. This was especially noticeable last season - he literally carried the team on his back.
At the same time, the season turned out to be very difficult for Leo: in the fall it seemed that Messi could actually leave the club, and he wanted to leave, but it didn’t happen. Biting the bullet, Messi stayed! And look what the result was!
In the Spanish national league, Leo Messi became the best scorer with 30 goals netted, pulled Barcelona out of the autumn crisis and almost led them to the championship title, winning the Spanish Cup along the way. Now Barca’s dependence on Messi is obvious, and it is rather bad for the team as a whole, but only heightens Leo's awesomeness!
The Argentine national team is the pain of Leo Messi. In its squad he lost four finals of major tournaments - three Copa America finals and the World Cup in Brazil. In the summer of 2021, another Copa took place - and here Leo proved himself beyond praise, bringing the team to the final on his shoulders.
While the tournament was occuring, Lionel turned 34 years old. Already an impressive age for a footballer to do his job, but Leo was still making the difference on the pitch, as if he was experiencing a second youth. Among Argentina's 12 goals in the Copa America, Messi took part in nine: he made 5 assists and succeeded in 4 more goals himself. At the Copa semi-final stage, the Colombian national team players got 6 yellow cards - all due to fouls on Leo.
In the final game, he worked hard in the defense and gave all of himself on the pitch in order to finally win the trophy with the team of Albiceleste. The final had to be played at Maracana against Brazil - it was difficult to face someone tougher, but Argentina, led by its captain, managed to take the title!
According to the results of Copa, Messi became his best scorer, best assistant and, naturally, the best player of the tournament! Still fresh in his years, still playing on a cosmic level!
Even before Argentina won the final, authoritative put him at the top of the Ballon d'Or contenders rankings! So even without winning the great trophy, Messi would certainly have ended up in the top three contenders for the prestigious award, simply because of his marvelous game! However, a trophy did happen and this is a gold confirmation of Leo's skills and efforts!
After the competition, the head coach of the Argentine national team Lionel Scaloni admitted: “ Messi played with an injury in the Copa America final. “He had a hamstring problem, but he still played. It says a lot about what kind of footballer Leo is, ” told Scaloni said.
Even with the injury, Messi continued to carry Argentina to the coveted trophy and even had a chance to leave his mark with a goal in the final. Sounds admirable, isn't it?
IT SEEMS TO US ... NO! IT DOESN’T EVEN SEEM TO US! WE CAN STATE WITH A STRONG CONFIDENCE - IT’S GOING TO BE THE 7TH BALLON D’OR FOR THE GREAT LEO MESSI!
