The midfield player of the Real Madrid and one of the players more talentosos of the world-wide football in the last years, Luka Modric, went the attendant to deliver the Balloon of Gold 2019 to Leo Messi this Monday 2 December in Paris. The player merengue had won the prize in the edition of 2018, and not even was nominated between the 30 first classified this year.

However, it did not doubt to the hour to accept the proposal of 'France Football' to be present in the ceremony to deliver the prize to the valid winner, Leo Messi to the one who admires deeply in spite of playing in antagonistic clubs. The Croat considers to Messi a very worthy successor, and from here that it have not done like others and have accessed to travel to the French capital.

It fits to remember that Modric hoarded all the prizes past year, starting with the prize that awards the UEFA, afterwards with the The Best of the FIFA and finally with the Balloon of Gold that 'France Football' carry delivering from 64 years ago. After a very bad season with the Real Madrid, little by little goes recovering the rhythm and in the last parties is leaving good performances.

This yes, follows being far of the big level that showed the past year, and that cost him to win the awards mentioned by in front of other stars like the same Messi. This Monday, on the stage of the Théâtre du Châtelet, Modric smiled to Messi and congratulated him by the achievement of the Balloon of Gold 2019, in a gesture of chivalry that always appreciates .

Cristiano Ronaldo, the opposite face of the coin

Cristiano Ronaldo, by the contrary, took the decision -once again- of not attending to the gala when knowing that it would not be the player rewarded. Some will think that is something normal when being immersed in the day in day out of the Juventus, whereas others will think that it treats of a lack of respect to his mates of profession, and especially to the current winner of the prize, Leo Messi.

Probably 'CR7' did not want to see this Monday, in direct, how the Argentinian attained the sixth Balloon of Gold of his sportive career and, with this, surpassed him to turn into the only player with six Balloons of Gold in all the history. It is clear that to the luso hurts him not being the best, and from here that it have not wanted to attend to the appointment in Paris. It will have lit at least the television?
