Lionel Messi’s Dad Takes Subtle Swipe at Cristiano Ronaldo After He Slams Ballon d’Or Win

Lionel Messi’s father has reacted angrily to Cristiano Ronaldo’s criticism of Messi’s chances of winning the Ballon d’Or in 2021, according to the Mirror.

Despite Ronaldo’s assertions that Messi and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski stole the award, Messi’s father, Jorge, appears unimpressed.

On Monday night in Paris, CR7 skipped the Ballon d’Or ceremony and his biggest adversary, Lionel Messi, received his seventh award.

What did Ronaldo say?
A Facebook account called ‘Cristiano Ronaldo – The Legendary’ describes Messi’s accolade as ‘Theft. Dirt. Shame. Simply regrettable.’

The post added:

“Who saw, saw. Anyone who is smart enough knows who the real deserving ones are. Receiving awards without earning it is false happiness, without pride.”
And a five-time recipient of the same award, Ronaldo, who garnered 435 votes to finish sixth has commented ‘facts’ underneath a post detailing why the Manchester United star should have won it.

The comment seem to have infuriated Messi’s dad as he uploaded of Messi holding his seventh Golden Ball alongside the caption as cited by Sport Skeeda:

“Bla bla bla… carry on.”

Toni Kroos also hit out at the decision to award Messi another

Ballon d’Or on his official podcast, saying:

“It’s absolutely not deserved. There is no doubt that Messi, with Cristiano [Ronaldo], has been the player of the last decade, but this year there should’ve been others ahead of him.


“For me, Karim [Benzema] would have been the number one if you were really looking for the best individual player of the last year because I can see from close quarters what an outstanding footballer he is.”
