Lionel Messi admitted that he was always happy if he could win the Ballon d’Or trophy. But, for Messi, the award could not be won without the help of his colleagues.
Messi is still the best footballer in the world today with Cristiano Ronaldo. Valid proof is the Ballon d’Or award which he has won five times in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.
Only Ronaldo can match the score of Messi. Thanks to his consistent slick performance, Messi has always been included in the Ballon d’Or winning candidates, including this year.
Despite having won many times, Messi has not been bored and has always looked up to the Ballon d’Or. For him, Ballon d’Or is a form of hard work he and his team-mates in giving achievements at the club and national team level.
“The outstanding award and perhaps the most special is the first,” Messi told Otro.
“This award can be achieved from the hard work of one team. Without achieving success with the team as we have done so far, I certainly cannot get an award like this,” he continued.
