Argentine Lionel Messi, the American Inter Miami player, was crowned with the 2023 Ballon d’Or.
The list of candidates included 30 players, and Erling Haaland, Manchester City’s top scorer, and French star Kylian Mbappé, Paris Saint-Germain’s striker, competed against him.
Messi tops the list of players who have won the Ballon d’Or award most times in history, with 8 times during his football career full of titles and achievements, in the years: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2019 and 2021, 2023.
Messi embarrasses Kylian Mbappe in a strange way at the Ballon d’Or ceremony, and Mbappe is forced to remain silent.
Drogba asks Messi about his rivals for the Ballon d’Or, “Mbappe and Haaland,” but Messi’s reaction was unusually insulting towards Mbappe.
Messi shocked Mbappe and ignored him. He talked about Haaland, his history, his championships, and his numbers, and said that he would win the Ballon d’Or, as if Mbappe was a small child who did nothing! Mbappe was in a very embarrassing position in front of the cameras.
