Dsince last Monday Luka Modric received the Golden Ballwe have attended a ridiculous campaign in favor of Leo Messi,fifth in the vote for the award that recognizes the best player in the world in 2018.It seems that ignoring the basis of the award and the voting system does not prevent questioning the winnerand criticize the classification of the '10' Argentine, the best footballer of this time of course.
There is a huge affinity for praising the figure of Leo since Messi does not win the Golden Ball,as if he needed it, as if they did not speak for him his football and his goals, like those of Cornell, or his status as a player from another planet.Amateurs and journalists who pass by fans have explained to the world that the Martian is extraordinary. It `s hilarious.In his day it was not necessary to argue that Michael Jordan was the best even if he did not win the MVP every year.Federer has not been ranked number 1 throughout his career. And there was not so much controversy, but the analysis of football is becoming vulgarized so much that it blushes.
It turns out that everything smells bad, that everything is manipulated, that there is noise around the prize, curiously since it is won by players from the eternal rival of Messi's Barcelona.The '10' failed in the Champions against Rome (quarterfinals) and was not up to the expectations in the World Cup, playing with Argentina.I'm a Messi fan, like almost every football lover, but Barça's crack was not the best of 2018.
Messi is number 1, as LeBron is in the NBA. That does not mean that you have to win all the prizes if in certain circumstances you did not give the level or it is surpassed by other fantastic players.It is easy to understand. 'El Padrino' was released in 1972. It is one of the best movies in the history of cinema. But he has not taken the Oscar every year since then. Messi does not need this festival. Do him the favor.
