Lionel Messi’s mother, Celia Cuccittini, claims she did not expect her son to win the Ballon d’Or 2019 again. However, she was also happy with La Pulga’s achievements.
Celia claimed to be happy with the achievement of the child. Even so, he did not expect Messi could again get the Ballon d’Or title.
The last time, Messi won the Ballon d’Or before this year’s edition was in 2015. That means, he ended four years of fasting in the event that was initiated by France Football.
“We think the fifth title is the last one. To be honest, this is a pleasant surprise. He (Messi) also did not expect it,” Celia told CNN Radio quoted from Dailymail.
“I didn’t know he could get it before. I didn’t know, and we didn’t know everything,”
Messi won the Ballon d’Or 2019 after appearing slick last season with Barcelona. He packed a total of 51 goals and led the Barcelona to embrace the La Liga title.
