Zapping Goal! Football club PSG: the figures of Georginio Wijnaldum’s career
Real Madrid’s propaganda for Karim Benzema to be crowned Ballon d’Or 2021 therefore did not work. Despite regular media outings from alumni and current Merengue players, the Frenchman finished 4th, behind Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho. But just because the mission failed doesn’t mean it has to stop. This Tuesday morning, several Madrid personalities make their voices heard to express their disagreement with Messi’s seventh coronation.
The most virulent is Iker Casillas. On Instagram, the former Madrid temple keeper (1999-2015) wrote: “It is more and more difficult to believe in the rewards of football”. Which strongly suggests that the votes in the direction of La Pulga were oriented… Partner of Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos was even more direct: “Why Karim was not Ballon d’Or? What is wrong this year, c ‘It is above all the first place. Leo does not deserve the Ballon d’O. There is no doubt that with Cristiano he has been the player of the past decade but this year there were other players ahead of him. ” .
In the end, only Carlo Ancelotti remained straight in his boots: “Benzema 4th at the Ballon d’Or? We must recognize these situations at their true value. Messi won and he remains a great player. Nothing more. Hopefully a Madrid native will win it next year. Benzema will have more motivation to finish first next time around. “
