His eighth (and last?) Ballon d’Or for world champion Lionel Messi, just shy of a podium for De Bruyne | football

Two world champions have received the Ballon d’Or in Paris. Lionel Messi won prizes for the eighth time among the men. Barcelona midfielder Aitana Bonmati was voted the best player in the world after her treble year. Kevin De Bruyne just fell off the podium in fourth.

A year to remember, crowned with the most important individual trophy. Lionel Messi has added his eighth (!) Golden Ball to his private collection. A recognition that he perhaps did not expect after a turbulent season.

Messi did not have a season full of glitz and glamor in the Paris Saint-Germain shirt. While his level was not criticized at the beginning of the season, the Argentinian was hit hard in Paris at the end of last season.

The reason? An alien version of Messi appeared on the biggest stage: the World Cup in Qatar. With a strong captain, he guided his team to the world title with 7 goals and 3 assists. At every important moment – including in the final against France – the dribbling butt was there.

An image for the history books.

Performance that fans in Paris could only watch with envy. Although Messi didn’t let it get to his heart. Oh well, how much could a flute concert in the Parc des Princes outweigh the euphoria in Buenos Aires after the triumph?

He let out his contract and moved to Miami, where he immediately found his joy in the game again.

The little Argentinian received his latest copy of the Golden Ball with a smile this evening. So he left Erling Haaland behind him in the voting. The Norwegian had a bad year with Manchester City.

But a treble, 52 goals and 9 assists in 53 appearances for the English club were not enough to dethrone the 36-year-old football phenomenon. Kevin De Bruyne just fell off the podium, after Kylian Mbappé (3rd).

Aitana Bonmati

Xavi Hernandez predicted it years ago, but among the women Aitana Bonmati Conca was voted the best player in the world.

The creative Barcelona midfielder guided her team to the treble last season and also won the World Cup with the Spanish national team. As MVP of the final, the 25-year-old was invaluable for her country.

The Barcelona youth product also made himself heard outside the lines. After the fuss surrounding Luis Rubiales, Bonmati was emotional with a fiery but tactful speech.

A bright spot inside and outside the lines for women’s football in Spain, which has had a turbulent year.
