Fans slam Ronaldo’s ‘shameless’ response to claims Messi ‘stole’ Ballon d’Ors

Messi picked up a record eighth Ballon d’Or award in Paris yesterday evening while Ronaldo wasn’t nominated for the first time in 20 years.

The pair have had a rivalry for the ages over the years as they battled it out for the accolade of the best player in the world.

But Messi’s eighth Ballon d’Or victory now sends him three clear of Ronaldo’s five trophies and in the eyes of many puts the debate to bed.

And some fans are suggesting the Portuguese superstar is a little hurt by slipping further behind his rival.

Following the ceremony in Paris, Spanish journalist Tomás Roncero posted a video commenting on the awards.


He said: “Hello friends. What we knew happened, they were going to give Messi another Ballon d’Or again.

“He went to retire in Miami, even though he already looked like he was retired at PSG preparing for the World Cup. He won the World Cup, yes, good, but with six penalties… The World Cup was ten months ago, it’s November.

“Messi has eight Ballon d’Ors, he should have had five. He has [Andres] Iniesta/Xavi’s Ballon d’Or, [Robert] Lewandowski’s who won six trophies in one season and [Erling] Haaland’s who was the top scorer.”

Ronaldo then commented on the scathing video on Instagram leaving four laughing emoji’s underneath the post.

Although it is not yet known what the Al-Nassr star’s response meant, many fans have suggested he isn’t pleased that Messi won another Ballon d’Or.

Taking to social media one fan wrote: “Actually can’t believe how embarrassing this behaviour is, how has he not just accepted the debate is done.”

While another added: “How shameless can this guy be?”

A third posted: “Ronaldo is so childish, this is some people’s goat. The Messi Ballon d’Or really hurt this guy.”

Inter Miami’s Messi finished ahead of Erling Haaland in second place for the individual accolade.

While Kylian Mbappe was the third-placed nominee closely followed by Man City duo Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri in fourth and fifth place.

Jude Bellingham collected the Kopa Trophy for the best young player and Emiliano Martinez was named the Yashin Trophy winner for being the best goalkeeper of the year.
