Messi wins sixth Ballon d’Or award, overtaking Cristiano Ronaldo

Published

on

Lionel Messi has become the first men’s footballer to win the Ballon d’Or award for a sixth time in the Paris gala on Monday.


The Argentina forward scored 46 times for club and country in 2019 — including the only goal in Barcelona’s 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Sunday. He also helped the Camp Nou side win La Liga.


The 31-year-old has beat competition from Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk, who was instrumental in helping Liverpool win the Champions League.
Messi also came out on top in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015 and he is now one clear of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has five.


United States star Megan Rapinoe won the Women’s Ballon d’Or award after being voted the tournament’s best player and joint top scorer as the USWNT won the 2019 World Cup in France.
