Now I'm wondering about Messi. He is 24, and has been succesfully being WORLD'S BEST within 3 years!
But yeah, it does make sense since we all know the way Messi plays football. Outstanding, marvelous, and no one owns it.
Leo defeated his teammate, Xavi Hernandez, and Christiano Ronaldo, who were the nominees of best player as well. Leo even presented the Ballon d'Or for Xavi. He said "We’ve shared this moment for four years. This Ballon d’Or is also yours. Without your help I would not be here”. What a speech from the real champion.
According to FIFA, Messi is also the youngest player to ever win three Ballon d’Or titles consecutively. See? He's simply amazing.
The President of FC Barcelona, Sandro Rosell, said that he is very proud of all the awards that FIFA has given to Barca. But what he liked the most is how Guardiola and Messi shared their awards, those are the qualities that they teach at the Masia.
For Rosell these things “demonstrate the human quality that we have at Can Barça.”
