Ballon d’Or Is A Lie, Lionel Messi Is The Best – Jordi Alba

share on:

Jordi Alba questioned Pele’s criticism of Lionel Messi as he labelled the Ballon d’Or a “lie”.

Lionel Messi finished fifth in the Ballon d’Or, which was won by Real Madrid star Luka Modric

The Argentina international responded in style on Saturday, scoring two wonderful free-kicks and setting up another goal in Barca’s 4-0 win over Espanyol in the derby.

Alba has no doubt Messi is the world’s best and he said Pele’s criticism was unfounded.

“The Ballon d’Or is a lie. There are many club and press campaigns,” he told reporters.

“Everyone knows that Messi is the best player in the world by far.

“[Pele] may not see it very well, if he says that about Leo. He has everything.”
