The Ballon d’Or, the highest personal and most prestigious award in football, is just two days away. Meanwhile, there are rumors that the award is going to be given to Lionel Messi, the Argentine football magician of PSG.
The winner of this year’s Ballon d’Or will be announced on November 29. Mateo Mareto, an Italian journalist with Sky Sports, had earlier said that Messi had won the Ballon d’Or this year. According to him, his (Messi’s) relatives have now been informed that Messi is winning this honor.
Mateo also said that Messi is holding the award, leaving behind Chelsea’s Italian midfielder Jorgenho and Bayern Munich’s Polish striker Robert Lewandowski.
A shortlist of 30 footballers for the Ballon d’Or was released in early October this year. In addition to Messi, there are Robert Lewandowski, Georginho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Angolo Cante, Lukaku, Pedri, Gianluigi Donnaruma, Neymar, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chillini, Simon Foucault, Simon Cajar, Ruben Dias, Ruben Dias, Ruben Dias, , Earling Holland, Harry Kane, Karim Benzema, Rahim Sterling, Lautaro Martinez, Mohamed Salah and Killian Mbappe.
After the release of the shortlist of 30 people, rumors started circulating that the name of the winner of Ballon d’Or had been leaked. It is said that although Lionel Messi is considered the favorite for this year’s award, this respectable recognition is going to be in the hands of Robert Lewandowski, the police striker of Bayern Munich. As can be seen in the list that went viral through social media, Lewandowski has emerged victorious. Robert is sharing this award after losing to PSG’s Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.
The reason behind Lewandowski’s award was shown to be that he has sent the ball into the opponent’s net a maximum of 45 times this year. He also has a record of winning Bundesliga, Club World Cup and DPL Super Cup.
