Congratz ! Lionell Messi Wins Ballon D'or

Having been rumored to win the award for times and times by the media, finally the news have come true as the latest report stated that Barcelona and Argentina's super star Lionel Messi has been heralded as this year's Ballon d'Or winner beating the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo on second place and the Argentinian player's club teammate Xavi Hernandez that arrives at third place.

According to, the Barcelona's ace has managed to receive a record breaking votes of about 473 out of the possible 480 points, moreover this award also made Messi as the first Argentinian to win the Ballon d'Or. The 22 years-old reportedly will official received the award on Sunday evening, at a Gala event in Paris.

Speaking about his excitement of receiving the award at France Football's website, Leo Messi said, "It is my great honour to be selected for the Ballon d'Or, but also to be the first Argentine in history to receive this award,"Moreover he added, "Honestly, I knew I was among the favourites, because Barca enjoyed a successful 2009 where we won everything. But I did not expect to win by a margin as large [240 points]. You know, the Ballon d'Or, is something very important to me. All those who won were great players. And some greats have never won it."

Well, in my personal opinion based on the past winner and the "standart" of the awarding, Messi hats off really deserved the award as he has been instrumental for Barcellona last season, not only in playing and leading his team but also in terms of scoring important goals for the squad. As we know Barca also have other infuential actors such as Xavi and Iniesta on the squad but in terms of overall contribution, which mostly count as goals, Messi certainly deserved to be noted in front.
Congrats to Messi...
