Leo Messi was protagonist this Monday in Milan, where conquered the FIFA The Best to the Best Player of the season. The one of Rosario confirmed once again like key piece in a FC Barcelona that aimed LaLiga and the Supercopa of Spain, and that also did final in Glass of Rey and semifinals in the Champions. His 51 goals and 22 assistances in 50 parties endorse him, but his big feelings could not being sufficient.

This award gave a dangerous track of face to the Balloon of Gold, the last big individual trophy of the campaign. It does some weeks, the prize to the Best Player of the year of the UEFA was for Virgil go Dijk, and although the Argentinian did to jump the surprise in another election in which the central was favourite, with permission of Cristiano Ronaldo, the one of the Liverpool goes back to have the wind of face in the distinction that awards 'France Football'.

The Barcelona was designated like winner by the captains, the seleccionadores and the fans, but no by the journalists. The maximum representatives of the combined national voted him by in front of the Dutch with 377 votes to 337 (and 330 for the luso); also the trainers with 379 to 307 (and 289 for the one of Madeira); and finally the popular jury devoted him 1.359.728 points, with 962.919 for the one of the Juventus and 704.235 for the defender of the 'reds'.

The key factor is that the correspondents of the distinct means will determine this last title, something that could be a disadvantage -since it does not ask neither to players neither to technical-. For them, the ex of the Southampton is clearly above the rest, something that already certified in the vote of the prize of the UEFA and in what they insisted in the one of the FIFA , with 462 points for Go Dijk, 364 for Messi and 264 for Cristiano, quite move# away of the battle.

In these circumstances, the swords are in high of face to the appointment in Paris, that could follow a series that began Luka Modric. The Croat is the first player that broke a historical decade, in which the two forwards aimed five balloons gilded per person. The one of Breda could be the next in writing his name in the trophy, if it is that I Read does not go back to do jump the surprise.

Messi is not concerned by the Balloon of Gold

It does some weeks, in an interview, Messi already answered to the cábalas on the Balloon of Gold ensuring that it does not concern him for nothing. The Argentinian launched a 'dart' to the organisers of this type of events signalling that the criteria every year are less clear, and kept firm in the speech that offers season after season. His priority is to follow winning with the Barça, and all what are not collective trophies does not remove him the dream.
