Pele celebrates Lionel Messi’s on winning his seventh Ballon d’Or
The Brazil legend, Pele, has celebrated the Paris Saint-Germain player on winning the 2021 Ballon d’Or on Monday night.
Messi acknowledge that the reason he might have won the 2021 Ballon d’Or is that he was one of the driving forces that caused Argentina to win the Copa America.
Messi, who is aged 34, surpassed the likes of Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo to take the award in a wonderful award show which took place on Monday in the France capital, Paris.
As he and his family had to move from Barcelona to Paris where he now plays to start a new life, the world decided to reward him for helping Argentina to win their first major international title since 1993.
He scored 38 goals in 48 games in his last season playing for Barcelona and also won the Copa del Rey.
Pele reacted to all this and called Messi a “Unique Talent”.
