Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi added a sixth Ballon d’Or to his tally after finishing ahead of Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo in the voting. However, many fans believe that the Liverpool defender or even his teammate Sadio Mane deserved the award more than the Argentine superstar.
Some of the fans took to Twitter to voice their displeasure and claim that VVD was more deserving of Ballon d’Or 2019 than Messi.
The player that wins the biggest football title or titles in a year with massive contribution to the team’s success should get player of the year.
Should have been
Sneijder,Xavi or Iniesta in 2010,Ribery in 2013&Van Dijk for 2019
Messi &Ronaldo don’t deserve some of those awards

Looks like Messi has won the Ballon d’Or which is a shame in way. Don’t think too many can argue Van Dijk didn’t deserve to win it. One of the most iconic year for a CB in some time

Let’s be real, Messi didn’t really deserve to win the #BallonDor, did he? Yes, his numbers have been impressive, but Van Dijk would have been more of a worthy winner

Ballon D Or is a joke.
No disrespect to Leo, but he didn’t deserve it this year.
Salah / Mane / Van Dijk shouldn’t he won. https://t.co/9bGTQ5nZuz

But he didn’t deserve the Ballon d’Or this year. Is he the greatest of all time? Yes but was he the best player of the last year? No that was Virgil Van Dijk!

Messi didn’t deserve the accolade this time. You can come @ me. Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane were more deserving.
