Messi tipped to win Ballon d'Or

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 7,714

In Catalonia they have it clear: Leo Messi must win the Ballon d'Or. On Thursday, 'Mundo Deportivo' and 'Sport' had Messi on the front page. The 2 Catalan sports papers asked that the Argentine is named King of football.

"Clamour " was the headline chosen by 'Sport'. After Leo Messi's exhibition against Valladolid, they think that he deserves it the most.

"His great performance set him up nicely for his sixth trophy as the best player in the world," the newspaper said. They also remember that he has a gift: "He has been scoring freekicks since 2008. He's become the great specialist of the decade".

These are Leo Messi's merits that show he deserves to win the Ballon d'Or, according to 'Sport'. However, they aren't the only ones who think he should win it.

'Mundo Deportivo's' headline is "Ballon de Messi". He appears alongside the image of the trophy that he would win.

"Messi accumulates merits and numbers that make him a favourite," they explain. And they compare him with other players who are also in contention for the Ballon d'Or. "He surpasses Cristiano's averages and Van Dijk's impact", they added.

On the other hand, in Italy, they are not so sure that Messi should win it. Juventus president, Andrea Agnelli, is obviously voting for Cristiano. "I hope that CR7 wins it, he deserves it", he recently said.

We will have to wait until the 2nd December, when the award will be given out, to see who wins it. Some will vote for Messi, others for Ronaldo, some even for Van Dijk. As time goes by we are closer to finding out who will add this important award to their trophy cabinet.
