Lionel Messi has been awarded the Ballon D'Or Award. But does he truly deserve it?
Is the tiny Argentinian the “best in the world”?
Simply put, No.
The award is the combination of the FIFA World Player of the Year and France Football magazine's Ballon D'Or Award (French for "Golden Ball"). It came about as an effort to recognize the “world’s best player” instead of “Europe’s best player.”
