Messi wins record sixth Ballon d'Or

Messi wins record sixth Ballon d'Or

"In the event that you give the Ballon d'Or to the best player of this age then you should give it generally to Lionel Messi".

The Ballon d'Or is one of the most coveted trophies in a professional footballer's life, and the 2019 edition of the award will be announced by France Football on Monday, December 2, 2019.

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has been crowned the victor of the Ballon d'Or for a record sixth time at the 2019 awards gala in Paris.

Federation Internationale de Football Association merged their player of the year award with the Ballon d'Or in 2010, and Messi was the first to win the title as he picked up a second consecutive gong.

"I never thought that I would be up for a Ballon d'Or until I was actually nominated", said Van Dijk. I'm gonna be there for a reason.

'I'm very proud of what I achieved last year with Liverpool and with Holland and hopefully we can do that again this year, but you know it's going to be tough as long as these guys are around.

"It is just something to be proud of because not a lot of players go there and are up for these kind of things".

‘Double-barreled’ winter storm to bring snow, mixed precipitation to central Pa.
A powerful winter storm bedeviling Thanksgiving weekend travelers across the United States is now headed for the Northeast. Road crews were able to reopen all of Interstate 25 and most of I-80 in Wyoming early Sunday after strong winds abated.

"There's no loser there, there's only a victor".

In picking up the Ballon d'Or, he became the first Argentine to ever win the award. Van Dijk is expected to finish ahead of Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sadio Mane and Alison Becker.

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also made the list, as did former Chelsea star, now of Real Madrid, Eden Hazard.

Messi had been level on five titles apiece with Cristiano Ronaldo, who finished in third place this year.

England pair Lucy Bronze and Ellen White were on the shortlist for the women's award. His two goals were vital as Liverpool continue to storm ahead of the top of the Premier League table.

Brighton were given an unexpected lifeline when Alisson was sent off for handling outside his box - meaning he will miss Wednesday's Merseyside derby - and Lewis Dunk caught out replacement goalkeeper Adrian with a quick free-kick.

"Yes, 100 per cent [it should be Van Dijk]", Gerrard said. Here we pick the top three contenders for the award and look at their chances of winning.
