Messi won the Ballon d’Or, his 7thin France ahead of Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Chelsea’s Jorginho.
The Argentine on Instagram posted an image of himself with the Ballon d’Or trophy and wrote: “Although I always put the collective forward, I cannot hide my joy at having been able to win another Ballon d’Or. I want to thank you and dedicate to all my colleagues and @afaseleccion staff for the beautiful year we have lived through. Also those I had at @fcbarcelona and those at @psg. And of course to my family and friends, as well as to all the people who support me, who are next to me, take care of me and make me perform every day: without all of them, this would never have been possible. And thanks also to @francefootball for the Gala and the award. Big hug!!!”
The win puts Messi two ahead of Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, who has five Ballon d’Or trophies of his own
