According to British broadcaster Piers Morgan, Lionel Messi wasn’t deserving of the 2023 Ballon d’Or.
Morgan maintained that the award process was manipulated in a post on his X account on Tuesday.
Erling Haaland, the striker for Manchester City, ought to have accepted the award in his opinion.
Messi ridiculously taking home the Ballon d’Alternatively, this year serves as more evidence that the entire “Golden Ball” system is rigged.
“Haaland should have won this year, he should have won two less, and @Cristiano should have won two more.” Morgan concluded.
Messi defeated Haaland and Mbappe, who came in second and third in the final voting, to win the Ballon d’Or.
