Leo Messi converted himself this Monday in the first footballer in conquering six Golden Balls. The new award serves him to go back to leave backwards to Cristiano Ronaldo and do divine justice
It does a pair of years, Cristiano Ronaldo achieved the unthinkable: equalise in Balloons of Gold to the same king of the football. It did it to base of effort and sacrifice, but especially with the help of the four Champions League in five years that conquered the Real Madrid. Of unfair way for many, the Portuguese put to the height of Leo Messi, to the one who the fault of 'orejonas' with the Barça happened him bill.
This Monday 2 December 2019, however, went back to do justice futbolística. Leo Messi received the Balloon of Gold 2019 of the hands of Luka Modric, the previous winner. "You deserve it to you", said him the player of the Real Madrid, in an exemplary act. 'The Flea' collected with mimo the Balloon of Gold that serves him to surpass, once again, to Cristiano Ronaldo. Everything goes back to be in order.
Messi won his prizes in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015, and in this 2019 has completed an impressive year with the sixth Boot of Gold and his first The Best of the FIFA, in addition to the quoted Balloon of Gold. Cristiano Ronaldo, by his part, attained the gesta to equalise to the Argentinian in 2017, although said tie so only has been able to last two years.
Accompanied of his wife Antonella Roccuzzo and of his two greater children (Thiago and Mateo), his brother Rodrigo and his nephew Agustín, Leo Messi went up to the stage and received the applauses of the elite of the international football. The big majority of the best players of the world congratulated to the Argentinian star, included a Go Dijk that has remained second so much in the The Best as in the Balloon of Gold.
Cristiano Ronaldo preferred not attending to the appointment, as it already has done in repeated occasions when it has known that it would not be winning elected. His gesture could understand like a lack of respect, in this case to Leo Messi, although to the '10' probably not even matter him.
The Balloon of Gold 2019, turning point for Messi
The Balloon of Gold of this Monday will be definitely a turning point, as it seems almost impossible that Cristiano, ready to fulfil 35 years and in a toneless state of form, achieve to go back to equalise some day to his antagonist. It is more, Messi still has 32 years and can expand even more the differences with the Portuguese in the next years. It will depend on the performances of each one, as well as of the titles that achieve with his respective teams and selections. For the moment, a thing is clear: Messi sees again to Christian by the rear-view mirror.
