Lionel Messi has upset many big names in the footballing world after he was named the winner of the France Football Ballon D’or 2021.
The Argentine star has now Seven Ballon D’ors in his name and is now proven as one of the greatest, although many think quite contrary to the fact and thinks that he is not the rightful winner for this season.
Many top tier footballers like Thomas Muller, Toni Kroos, Zlatam Ibrahimovic and some others have come out in their social media handles saying that the award was a steal and this debate has stirred more especially after Cristiano Ronaldo’s “Factos” comment in an Instagram post.
Robert Lewandowski finished a close second followed by Jorginho. According to many Lewandowski should have been the winner while the Polish forward instead received the newest award of the ceremony “Striker of the Year”.
