Leo Messi agrandó his legend this past Tuesday with the conquest of the seventh Balloon of Gold​ of his career. The one of Rosario carried the prestigious prize by in front of Robert Lewandowski and of Jorginho, that completed the podium by behind him. The ex player of the FC Barcelona received the trophy of his fellow and ex mate Luis Suárez and had words of gratitude and of affection to the group barcelonista in his speech like winner.

But once concluded all and with the award home of the 'crack', it is necessary to ask the reason by which the '30' of Paris Saint-Germain has carried this Balloon of Gold. His sportive merits are clear: Glass of the King with the Barça, Pichichi of LaLiga, Glass America with Argentina and Pichichi shared in the own tournament sudamericano. However, in spite of this, there is who asks if in his victory also has had to see his current team, the PSG, by the vicinity that have the French with 'France Football', the half that organises the gala.

But the reality is that with the French picture has not won any title neither has surrendered especially well in the futbolístico. In the more than 4 months that carries in Paris only has been able to play 11 official parties by fault of his fault of preparation to the start of the season and by fault of the once begun injuries the campaign. In these 11 meetings, besides, has not been to his usual level and only has annotated 4 goals and has delivered 3 assistances, all they, by the way, in the last crash of Tie 1 of the Frenchmen.

Therefore, with some regular statistics to be Messi, having remained second in his group of Champions League after the Manchester City and without having conquered any title, for real has been able to have something that see the PSG in this Balloon of Gold? The reality deportivamente speaking is that no. Leo has conquered this award only by his good year in Barcelona, where carried the Glass, and especially by his good Glass America, in which it was leader of Argentina.

The Glass America gave advantage to Messi

The trophy that has marked the difference so that the eternal '10' have carried this prize has been definitely the one who won with the combined 'albiceleste' this past summer. It was his first important victory with the selection, further of the Olympic games that won does already quite a lot of years. Leo had pursued this triumph during all his career and does some months at last could attain it. 'Calló' Mouths, removed his greater weight of on and attained to happen to the history of his country at last.

It is all what supposed to carry the Glass America, where besides was one of the stars of the tournament, what has decanted the scales in this Balloon of Gold. In case of not to have it livestock or of have not shined in the same, is more than likely that Lewandowski had surpassed him and had won this individual prize. The Pole marked quite a lot more goals that he and won the Bundesliga, by what in the one against one with the Glass of Messi in the Barcelona possibly had won. Luckily, the rosarino marked the difference with Argentina to go on doing history in this award.
