World champion Lionel Messi’s eighth (and final?) Ballon d’Or, just a short distance from De Bruyne’s podium | soccer

Two world champions received the Ballon d’Or in Paris. Lionel Messi won the awards for the eighth time among men. Barcelona midfielder Aitana Bonmatti has been named FIFA World Player of the Year following her triple year. Kevin De Bruyne fell from the podium in fourth place.

An unforgettable year, crowned with the most important individual title. Lionel Messi added an eighth (!) Ballon d’Or to his own collection. An admission he might not have expected after a tumultuous season.

Messi has not had a year full of glitz and glamor in a Paris Saint-Germain shirt. While his level was not criticized at the beginning of the season, the Argentine suffered a heavy blow in Paris at the end of last season.

the reason? A bizarre version of Messi has appeared on the biggest stage: the World Cup in Qatar. The powerful captain led his team to the world title with 7 goals and 3 assists. And in every important moment – including the final against France – the dribbling was there.

A performance that fans in Paris can only watch with envy. Even though Missy didn’t let her reach his heart. Well, how much could a flute concert in the Parc des Princes surpass the euphoria that prevailed in Buenos Aires after the victory?

He terminated his contract and moved to Miami, where he immediately found his happiness in the game again.

The young Argentine received his latest edition of the Ballon d’Or with a smile this evening. Erling therefore left Haaland behind in the vote. The Norwegian has had a bad year with Manchester City.

But a hat-trick, 52 goals and nine assists in 53 appearances for the English club were not enough to unseat the 36-year-old footballing phenomenon. Kevin De Bruyne fell from the podium, after Kylian Mbappe (third).

Aitana Bonmati

Xavi Hernandez predicted this years ago, but among women, Aitana Bonmati Conca has been named the best player in the world.

The creative Barcelona midfielder led her team to a treble last season and also won the World Cup with the Spanish national team. As the best player of the final, the 25-year-old was invaluable to her country.

The Barcelona youth product has also made his voice heard outside the lines. After the furore surrounding Luis Rubiales, Bonmati got emotional with a fiery but tactful speech.

A bright spot for women’s football in Spain, which has had a turbulent year.
