Exactly one week has passed since the ceremonial “France Football” gala, during which the Golden Ball was awarded. Leo Messi triumphed in the poll for the seventh time, followed by Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho. The verdict aroused a lot of controversy. Many experts and journalists – not only in Poland – believed that the prize for this year belonged to a Pole.
Messi’s son surprised by another Golden Ball? A nine-year-old’s embarrassing question
However, the Golden Ball fell into the hands of Leo Messi, as the Argentine learned a few days earlier. On this occasion, the PSG footballer gave an interview to “France Football” and took part in a special photo session with the entire collection of awards.
A video of the day Messi found out he would win another Golden Ball has been shared on social media. It shows a rather embarrassing situation for the player. His son Thiago asked him a surprising question. – When did you win it? the nine-year-old asked. “Today,” Messi replied. – Why? the boy inquired. “I don’t know,” replied the confused PSG star.
It seems that Leo Messi’s son was somewhat surprised by the next award given to his father. A similar surprise was expressed by many people from the football community who believed that it was Robert Lewandowski who should win the Golden Ball this year. The Argentine himself also spoke about this after receiving the trophy. – Robert, I think you deserve the Golden Ball in 2020, “France Football” should award it to you. We all know you deserved it, you were a winner back then and you couldn’t get a prize because of the coronavirus pandemic. In my opinion, you should have this trophy in your home, the PSG player admitted.
