Messi winning 2019 Ballon d’Or is injustice – Ronaldo’s agent

Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes has stated that the 2019 Ballon d’Or award won by Lionel Messi of Barcelona is an injustice.

Messi won the award ahead of Van Dijk who won the Champions League with Liverpool and his rival Ronaldo.

However, Jorge Mendes believes this doesn’t make him the best footballer in the world.

“The Ballon d’Or to Messi? For me it’s an injustice,” Mendes told Tuttosport at Monday’s Golden Boy Award ceremony in Turin.

“Cristiano is the best in the history of football. Before him, Portugal had not won anything, with him the [2016] European Championship and the Nations League.

“The Ballon d’Or? Had he played at Real [Madrid] he would have won it. He has transformed world football, in Portugal, at Real Madrid. It’s impossible to compare him to anyone.”
