The nominated to Balloon of Gold already know and such as it expected the Argentinian Lionel Messi is between the candidates, although the ex player culé will not have it so easy to achieve again the trophy to the best of the season that awards France Football, further of this curious cover that showed .

The reasons to win it are:

Leader culé

Messi was the maximum representative of the offensive of the Barcelona the past campaign, that finished with an abysmal performance in Champions, the third place of LaLiga and the conquest of the Glass of Rey, trophy that raised like captain in the middle of a big euphoria beside his mates. Once again, pichichi of league and absolute owner of the tournament.

Argentinian leader

Only the final of the Glass America had to a grey Messi, but of rest was the sparking plug of his selection remembering partidazos as the one who had against Colombia, in addition to being leader of goals and assistances in the contest sudamericano. His first title with Argentina adds him a lot of points for.

But also it has hard rivals:


The previous campaign was the maximum candidate but suspended the prize. The fact of not reediting the Champions is the only lunar for the Pole that in the individual follows going out with important goals for the Bayern, in addition to being the best forward of the last years all over the world of the football.


It is not the more mediático neither brilliant, but yes a key piece in the Eurocopa of Italy and the Champions of Chelsea. The mediocampista had a glorious season in which it won the most important titles that contested except the Premier League, but what more can him subtract is the fact of not being the goleador of the blues.


Totally desatado in the last years, but his candidature also carries something of matrix generated to involve it. The evolution of his game is remarkable in the Real Madrid and his influence is main, but also is true that lacks competition in the team and with France did not raise the Eurocopa in spite of the favouritism.
