After Winning Seventh Ballon d’Or, Messi Admits Lewandowski Should’ve Won Last Year

Lionel Messi won his record-extending seventh men’s Ballon d’Or on Monday. Anyone who watched him carry both Argentina and Barcelona over the last year knows he absolutely deserved it. But even Messi admitted on Monday that Robert Lewandowski deserves the 2020 Ballon d’Or.

Ronaldo Finishes 6th In Ballon d’Or Voting, Doesn’t Attend Ceremony And Still Steals The Show

Lionel Messi edged Robert Lewandowski for the men’s 2021 Ballon d’Or, the Argentine’s record-extending seventh trophy as the best men’s player in the world. But Cristiano Ronaldo, who didn’t even attend the award show in Paris, still managed to make it all about him.

Messi, who this year helped Argentina win the 2021 Copa América and Barcelona win the Copa del Rey (lol), was also named the world’s best men’s player in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2019.

Neymar Could’ve Scored The Goal Of The Tournament; Gabriel Jesus Found The Winner Instead

PARIS — Lionel Messi scored his first Ligue 1 goal as Paris Saint-Germain opened a 13-point lead in Ligue 1 despite playing almost half an hour with 10 men in a 3-1 home win against Nantes on Saturday.

Con Su Clásica Fórmula De Derecha A Izquierda, Messi Por Fin Hizo Un Gol En La Ligue 1

Cinco partidos, 416 minutos o 19 tiros al arco. Cualquiera sea la medida, eso es lo que le costó a Lionel Messi convertir su primer gol defendiendo al PSG en la Ligue 1 de Francia.

La Pulga ya había anotado por los parisinos en Champions League, pero su estreno en las redes locales continuaba siéndole esquivo. Tanto que varios comenzaban a poner en duda su fichaje. "Se está marchitando", llegó a decir incluso el periódico Le Parisien.

No obstante, este sábado, Messi cortó la mala racha, sellando la victoria por 3-1 sobre el Nantes.

PSG’s Brazilian Director And Argentine Coach Have Wildly Different Takes On Messi’s Call-Up

Much has been said about Lionel Messi’s slow start to life in Paris, which is basically just to say that the 34-year-old hasn’t played much. Given his reluctance to ever miss a minute with Barcelona — regardless of whether it was a Champions League or second round Copa del Rey match — it’s been weird seeing Messi go over one-third of the league season without scoring or assisting yet.
