Ballon d’Or 2021: Messi doesn’t deserve award – Kroos criticizes organizers


Real Madrid midfielder, Toni Kroos, has criticized the decision to hand Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi this year’s Ballon d’Or.

Kross claimed that Messi doesn’t deserve the 2021 Ballon d’Or, adding that there should have been others ahead of the Argentine captain.

DAILY POST reports that France Football, organizers of the Ballon d’Or, named Messi as the winner of the 2021 award on Monday night in Paris.

Messi won this year’s Ballon d’Or ahead of Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Chelsea’s Jorginho (third place).

The former Barcelona captain finished with 613 points, while runner-up Lewandowski amassed 580.

Speaking on his podcast, Kroos said: “It’s absolutely not deserved.

‘There is no doubt that Messi, with Cristiano, has been the player of the last decade, but this year there should’ve been others ahead of him.”
