Players Who Believe Lionel Messi Doesn't Deserve His 7th Ballon D'or Award {Opinion}


1. Toni Kross

The Real Madrid star Toni Kroos believes that Lionel Messi's seventh Ballon d'Or victory was "absolutely not merited" and that Cristiano Ronaldo has improved over the last year. Messi has won the award seven times.

Messi took the top spot on the list after having another memorable season with both club and country. Having already assisted Barcelona to victory in the Copa del Rey in April, he went on to win his first senior international trophy with Argentina in the Copa America in 2021 - a competition in which he was also awarded Player of the Tournament.

Argentinean superstar Lionel Messi won the men's award for a record seventh time, with Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho getting second and third place, respectively, after both having outstanding individual seasons.

Iker Casillas

And former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has expressed his displeasure with the most recent Ballon d'Or winners.

"It's getting harder and harder to believe in these football awards," he wrote on Twitter.

Messi is, in my opinion, one of the best players in the history of football, but we need to start paying attention to which players stand out the most over a season.
