- But a Liverpool fan stated that the Argentine does not deserve to win it
- He also said that Cristiano Ronaldo is the real GOAT because he has played in three different leagues
An unnamed Liverpool fan has stated emphatically that Barcelona star Lionel Messi is overrated and does not deserve to win the 2019 Ballon d'Or award.
Lionel Messi on Monday night, December 2, won his sixth career Ballon d'Or award beating Liverpool's Virgil Van Dijk and Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo.
While speaking with talkSPORT, the Liverpool fan said Lionel Messi has only achieved his success in the Spanish La Liga where he believes Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two biggest teams.
He added that Virgil Van Dijk is the one that should have been named the Ballon d'Or winner considering how he stopped Lionel Messi and won the Champions League title.
The Liverpool fan also stated that Cristiano Ronaldo is the undisputed GOAT because he's done it in three different Leagues, while Lionel Messi has never played out of Spain.
And while rounding up his outburst on talkSPORT, he stressed that Lionel Messi is not that good as people believe saying that he will rather have Mohamed Salah in his team than the Argentine.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has scored 625 goals in 733 games and broke countless records in his career as a one-man club with Barcelona
