Lionel Messi (Inter Miami) has won his eighth Ballon d’Or, cementing his status as a soccer god. However, there are those who have a different take on Messi’s Ballon d’Or win. 토토사이트

Last month, Messi was named the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT). He won the French Football Ballon d’Or, soccer’s most prestigious individual award, for the eighth time.

This year’s Ballon d’Or, which reflects his victory at last year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar, saw Messi beat out Elling Holland (Manchester City) and Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) for the honor.

He broke his own record for most Ballon d’Or wins. Messi, who first won the Ballon d’Or in 2009, won it four years in a row until 2012. She hasn’t looked back since, winning in 2015, 2019, and 2021. Seven awards seemed like a hard record to break, but this year she added one more, making it an unprecedented eight-time winner of the golden ball.

Messi’s Ballon d’Or win was largely due to winning the World Cup. In Qatar, he won his long-awaited World Cup. His seven goals in seven games from the group stage to the final were the biggest factor in Argentina’s victory.

Messi is the favorite to win the Ballon d’Or this year, but there is a strong counterargument. German legend and 1990 Ballon d’Or winner Lothar Matthäus alone said, “Holland was better than Messi. If you look at the last 12 months alone, Holland’s record is the best. He’s won every major award at Manchester City. Messi’s awards are a joke.”

Paulo Dybala (AS Roma) responded with a rebuttal. “Messi plays a completely different kind of soccer,” his Argentine teammate told Sports Brief. That’s why he won the Ballon d’Or for years, even if he didn’t win the World Cup.” “Messi has always been the best since he made his debut, and in the World Cup he proved himself. Messi is the best of all time.”

“I understand that you can be biased in favor of Messi. But you have to be objective. This was a World Cup year, and the World Cup is the most important competition in the world. Messi’s Ballon d’Or is indisputable,” he concluded.
