"Congratulations to Leo Messi! My election would have been Benzema. Why? Listen it". East was the tuit with which Toni Kroos left clear that was not for nothing of agreement in that Leo Messi have won the Balloon of Gold this year. The germano positioned clearly with his mate of team, Karim Benzema, that was fourth. In a 'podcast', the midfield player explained more in detail why had not given him the prize to the Argentinian.

"In the first place, I have to say that they do not interest me at all the individual prizes. But if there are them, then would have to be just. In my opinion, this is not the case at all", began the '8' of the Real Madrid his intervention. After clearing that it does not believe in the awards of this type, explained very clearly his reasons to be against of the seventh Balloon of Gold awarded to Messi.

"For me, Benzema would have been the number one if really you were looking for to the best individual player of the past year because I see closely the exceptional that is", affirmed the germano, defending to the '9' madridista. A defence that, however, does waters by all sides since it does not leave to be an opinion of somebody involved in this subject and that will defend to his fellow and mate whatever happens.

Kroos Continued his explanation leaving clear that plants to Leo in the throne of the football beside Cristiano, but that this does not involve that it deserve the prize in this 2021. "There is not doubt that Messi is at the side of Cristiano Ronaldo like the player of this decade and has qualities that others never will have. What fails in the election is especially the first place", stood out, referring to the award to the '30' of the PSG.

Kroos Only attacked to Leo Messi

With these last statements, the already ex international with Germany insinuated that in case that Robert Lewandowski, second in the vote, or Jorginho, third, had winning the Balloon of Gold, had not seemed him so unfair like that it won it Messi. Unfortunately for the German and for all the madridistas, the world of the football in general has gone back to acclaim to the ex Barcelona like the best of the world by seventh time in his career.
