It does some months, Leo Messi was proclaimed winner of the prize The Best FIFA 2019​ above Virgil go Dijk (Liverpool) and of Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus of Turín), the others two finalists. Thus, it surprises that it does some days, from Italy, ensured that it will be the Portuguese forward the one who carry the Balloon of Gold of this year.

Afterwards it arrived the show of Dolores Aveiro, mother of the Portuguese. Us deleitó ensuring that his son had not won more Balloons of Gold because "it exists a mafia in the football" in his against and because "it is of Madeira". His repertoire of bad jokes finished with a "Christian deserves the Balloon of Gold 2019 if we analyse what did during the season".

Partly, it understands . A son is a son. What no longer comprises so easily is the absurd debate that has mounted as a result of the informations of the Italian press, that gave to Cristiano Ronaldo like winner of the prize. An even more bad joke that the ones of Dolores Aveiro but that, in this case, also is unpleasant by the absurd that becomes that it argue the merecimiento of Leo Messi.

What did Cristiano Ronaldo to win it? Yes, it topped to Italy with the Juventus of Turín, but not even appeared between the maxima goleadores of the Series To, that were Quagliarella, Zapata and Piatek. His season did not go at all of the another world and more if we see the poor paper of his team in Champions League falling in chambers in spite of that, it is necessary to say it, here if had influence goleadora with his so many.

It does not be necessary to forget that the luso also won with Portugal the UEFA Nations League, a competition taken out of the sleeve recently, generated to base of friendly parties and that does not have more value that win the Gamper or the trophy Santiago Bernabéu. It seems absurd to give more value to this trophy decaffeinated that to the fourth place that Messi obtained in the Glass America.

Messi, with merits of leftovers

Leo Messi was the best of 2019 and anybody can argue it. Pichichi And champion of LaLiga Santander, winner of the Balloon of Gold, third of the Glass America and leading of anthological performances in Champions League that carried to the team to semifinals. His start of the present season, with parties like the one of the Valladolid or the one of the Celtic, also has been formidable. The reality is simple and flat: that the Argentinian star remain without Balloon of Gold so that it win it Christian would be a shame.
