Lionel Messi Beats Haaland, Mbappe to Win a Record 8th Ballon d’Or in 2023

Messi Wins Eight Ballon Dor After World Cup MLS Success

Lionel Messi is expected to claim a record-extending 8th Ballon d’Or in 2023 after a leak (according to Spanish Media Outlet SPORT) revealed he has won the coveted award yet again. This caps a momentous 2022 for the Argentine legend.

At age 36, Messi shows no signs of slowing down. After years of heartbreak, he finally achieved World Cup glory with Argentina in Qatar. His teary-eyed celebrations defined the tournament.

Messi also joined Inter Miami in MLS this summer and immediately dazzled American fans with his trademark skills and goals. He remains a dominating force late in his glittering career.

Messi has now been awarded his 8th Ballon d’Or ahead of Manchester City phenom Erling Haaland and World Cup Golden Boot Kylian Mbappe.

Haaland terrorized defenses in leading City to a domestic treble, while Mbappe spearheaded France’s run to the final in Qatar with a hat trick against Messi’s Argentina. But Messi’s World Cup win likely cemented his victory.

The prize caps an unforgettable year in which Messi cemented his status as an all-time great. He has shown age is just a number by continuing to amaze fans across yet another league in MLS.

Barcelona’s Aitana Bonmati Reported As Women’s Winner

The leaks also indicated Barcelona midfielder Aitana Bonmati has won her first Ballon d’Or Feminin. She was another standout at the 2022 World Cup, winning the Golden Ball as Spain reached the quarters.

The 25-year-old also achieved Champions League and domestic league-cup doubles with Barcelona to underline her world-class credentials. Her projected victory is a well-deserved recognition of her rising stardom.

While Messi may win the men’s award, Bonmati represents the bright future of the women’s game. Their joint triumphs showcase how soccer’s biggest talents inspired fans worldwide with their brilliance in 2022.
