Lionel Messi Wins Record 7th Ballon d’Or

Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain and Argentina knocked off runner-up Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich and 28 other contenders for the 2021 Ballon d’Or, which he won on Monday in Paris.

The award is given by France Football magazine to the male soccer player who has been regarded as the finest in the world for the preceding year. It is the most prestigious individual honor in the sport, and it is decided by a jury of 180 foreign journalists.

Alexia Putellas, a striker for Spain and Barcelona, won the women’s Ballon d’Or for the third time this year. In August, she was named the UEFA Women’s Player of the Year.

Messi won the Ballon d’Or for the seventh time on Monday, breaking his own record that he set with his sixth win in 2019. With five Ballon d’Ors, rival Cristiano Ronaldo is second all-time. In this year’s poll, the Manchester United and Portugal forward came in sixth place.

Messi has now won the trophy for the second time in a row. Due to the influence of the COVID-19 epidemic on the international soccer schedule, the Ballon d’Or will not be presented in 2020. This year, he took home the award for a professional season split between PSG and Barcelona. In August, Messi departed Barcelona, where he had been a member since 2004, to join PSG. In July, he was the captain of Argentina’s national team, who won the Copa America.
