Goal - The former Selecao star believes the Barcelona ace has the edge over his rival for the Ballon d'Or both in terms of ability on the field and personality off it.
I thought, that the Ballon d'OR was measure in skill and how they did in the season. Not, if they're humble or anything how they are as a person.
Ballon d'Or will go to Messi just because he is more likable.. which in my opinion it doesn't matter it all about how you've performed over the last season..,.
nobody should win a trophy coz they likeable. if thats the case, they should make a "Mr congeniality" trophy and give that to messi. but ronaldo got robbed earlier this year. having outperformed both the other nominees, but i guess since they couldn't give it to messi, they gave it to the other nominee who is likeable coz everyone knows there is no way in hell iniesta deserved it especially after the seasons ronaldo and messi had.
Messi use to seem more humble than he does now, but anyway, I think if Ronaldo would've helped Madrid to a CL trophy last year, there would've been no doubt that he deserves the award, but since he didn't, and Messi scored more goals here and there, it's up for grabs between the two, either choice would be right imo, both have shown to be amazing players.
