Lothar Matthus Criticizes Messi’s Eighth Ballon d’Or and Angel Di Maria Responds

Lothar Matthus: Messi’s Baln de Oro was a “farsa”

The German Lothar Matthus, world champion in 1990 and Ballon d’Or winner that same year, has raised doubts about the legitimacy of the eighth Ballon d’Or awarded to Leo Messi last Monday. Matthus justified his opinion by stating that “Haaland was the best player of the last 12 months, as he won important titles with the City and built records there.”

And that’s where things stand… for now.

Barcelona and Girona will face each other in the matchday 16 of LaLiga EA Sports. The match will be the last one on Sunday. Barcelona, ​​currently third in the table, is 4 points behind both Girona and Real Madrid, who are jointly leading the standings after fifteen games. A victory for Girona would not only widen the gap between them and their closest pursuer to 7 points but also demonstrate their potential to do great things. However, teams like Girona often experience a drop in form in the second half of the season due to having smaller squads and fewer substitutes for their starting eleven. A win for Girona this time would definitely make everyone take notice of them. On the other hand, Barcelona needs a win to keep up with Girona and Real Madrid and prevent Atletico Madrid from catching up on the table. Atletico will play their postponed match against Sevilla on December 23rd. Currently, Simeone’s team is three points behind Barcelona, ​​but with one less game played. Here are the matches of LaLiga EA Sports matchday 16 that can be watched on DAZN during the weekend: – Deportivo Alavés – UD Las Palmas (Saturday, 1:30 p.m.) – Villarreal CF – Real Sociedad (Saturday, 6:00 p.m.) – Granada FC – Athletic Club (Sunday, 3:45 p.m.) – FC Barcelona – Girona FC (Sunday, 8:30 p.m.) There is also an image of Rodrigo de Paul, a player from Atletico Madrid, facing Joao Felix and Gundogan in a match against Barcelona

  1. “Lothar Matthus’ criticism on Messi’s eighth Ballon d’Or seems unwarranted and ignorant. Messi’s consistent excellence and unmatched talent speak for themselves. Kudos to Angel Di Maria for defending his teammate, proving that true football legends support and respect each other.”

  2. It’s understandable that Lothar Matthus might have reservations about Messi’s eighth Ballon d’Or, given the fierce competition and talent in the football world. However, it’s important to acknowledge that each award is based on individual merit and Di Maria’s response subtly hints at the respect and recognition Messi truly deserves.
