Leonel Messi represented his Golden Ball in front of the Parc des Princes audience

It is a scene already played six times through Lionel Messi and well set up in Catalonia. But absolutely new at the Parc des Princes. In which we felt the enthusiasm of the first instances. The presentation of a Golden Ball carrying the PSG tunic does not show up every day. It's far even unpublished. Virtually, in 1995, George Weah had received the celebrated trophy way to his exploits during six months with Paris. However, in the interim transferred to AC Milan, the Liberian had presented him to the tifosis of San Siro.


Or even if it appears pretty obvious that the 7th ball within the golden collection of the Pulga is specially due to its performances with Barcelona and, peculiarly, its selection (the coronation in Copa the united states), the Parisian public has acted as though the trophy become form of his. So the club, fifteen minutes before kick-off, prompt the fireworks whilst celebrating its glories of the day.

First the Italian Gianluigi Donnarumma, named the first-class goalkeeper on Monday, way to his amazing Euro, and then of course Messi. Separately, the outstanding Italian and then the little Argentine superior to a platform where their trophies awaited them.

Donnarumma said words in French

The speeches have been as exciting and warm as the rite remaining Monday. With terms like “this trophy is also yours”, launched via Donnarumma, or: “i'm hoping to attain my desires and win trophies”, proclaimed by way of Messi. Donnarumma made the attempt to distill sentences in French. “right here, it's far … (Paris)”, he slipped. Messi has remained in his mother tongue. The time for a salute to the general public and Leo eagerly grabbed his Golden Ball to bring it back heat within the locker room.

On the brink of the lawn, the brand new MotoGP international champion, the French Fabio Quartararo, savored the scene with envy. Even his very own world coronation seemed very small against the dignity of Messi. “It’s virtually an success, what he accomplished, he notes admiringly. My aim is to combat to win a number of trophies. And if i'm advised that i'm able to have as many Ballon d’Or world titles as he does, I sign right away! “
