We confirmed the information about Messi’s victory in two independent sources. The Ballon d’Or winner’s vote is over, and although the France Football editors try to keep the winner’s name secret, it never turns out to be successful. Although the pool of people familiar with the results is pretty small, you see, it’s not narrow enough to avoid leaks.
The information about the seventh victory of Argentina in this poll has already been published by Spanish journalists and everything seems to be true.
It is possible that Robert Lewandowski will take second place, but Josep Pedrol, host of the well-known program “El Chiringuito de Jugones”, claims to be even third. On Friday, he published a post on Twitter mentioning the final standings for the Ballon d’Or. In his opinion, Messi will beat Benzema and Lewandowski.
You see, the most important thing for voters will not be the performance of Leo, who has scored as many as 64 goals this year (he also had nine assists). In addition, he broke the record of 49-year-old Gerd Muller’s goals in one season of the German League, in which he scored as many as 41. This year he won the German championship and won the KMW and the German Super Cup.
Messi won the Copa America and was the biggest star of the event. He also won the King’s Cup and became the top scorer in the Spanish League. Until July, he was considered the favorite in the fight for the Ballon d’Or, but after moving to Paris Saint-Germain, his performance was less good. Over the year, his achievements were much weaker than those of Lewy – he scored 41 goals and added 18 assists.
Journalists from all over the world participate in the vote, and for journalists from South America, the victory in the Copa America is especially valuable. However, Messi’s victory will be determined more by the charm of his name.
We’ll officially find out who will win the Ballon d’Or at today’s concert at Théâtre Chatelet in Paris, around 10pm (the party will start at 8:30pm). The last preparations are underway in front of the stage, in front of the wall there is a staircase on which the stars stand.
