Argentina's Lionel Messi has won the prestigious Ballon d'Or, the award for Europe's player of the year voted by journalists and organised by France Football magazine.
Lionel Messi's Champions League win helped him to the Ballon d'Or
Messi, the talented Barcelona forward, sent last year's winner Cristiano Ronaldo into second place, making him the sixth Barcelona player to take the award but the first for four years - since Brazilian playmaker Ronaldinho.
Messi became the first Ballon D'Or winner from Argentina, eclipsing Ronaldo by a record 240-point margin. The award's 96 jurors gave Messi 473 points out of a possible 480, a near unanimous verdict, the magazine said on its website.

|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by akinalabi(m): 10:54am On Dec 01, 2009|
He absolutely deserves it. There was no doubting the fact that he was going to win it.
He's had a fantastic year and he was miles ahead of everyone else. If we now add
Barcelona's dominance in Europe, there was only going to be one winner.

The gap between them boyz isn't as wide as that ballot suggests. I think it was rigged.
|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by eyoniggar(m): 8:06pm On Dec 01, 2009|
Dude ur analytically intelligent, but when it comes to disputing the fact that EL Mesiah isnt worth this crowning, then you must be talking bollocks.
|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by edoyad(m): 8:12pm On Dec 01, 2009|

|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by edoyad(m): 8:40pm On Dec 01, 2009|
Ode . It was rigged so Messi can be sold for $120m to Chelsea in January.
|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by ~Sauron~: 10:01pm On Dec 01, 2009|

|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by ~Borat~: 11:59pm On Dec 01, 2009|
|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by ndcide(m): 3:22am On Dec 02, 2009|
i won't say much until after 6 months. if he is still as good, then hes really good
bt if he cant defend the title in 6months time. then any body could have won it. no big deal.
|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by ogazi007(m): 9:17am On Dec 02, 2009|
Bad belle people!one year wont be enough for you to access how grate messi is if u have not noticed that he has been representing over the years.
second runner up(2007),runner up(2008),and finally the world best footballer 2009.show some respect that mercylessy messi is a genius.
|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by coolguyz(m): 3:54pm On Dec 02, 2009|
HABA! u need 6mnths to knw if he deserved the award ? u sure must hv forgotten this guy has been on the screen long enuf at a very young age. U-21 world cup in 2005 most valuable player. . . hw many of his colleagues then are anywhere near him? has an olympic medal to that in 2008 and was a major part of that team too. hv u as well forgotten his exploits in the champs league of 2005 before injury at kept him off the semis and finals? i'm sure del horno of chelsea would never forget the young genius (by the way he's just 22. . . meaning he was in his teen when he was shitting on MEN old enuf to be his father)
when someone deserve to be praised, lets praise him. . . . . messi would be ard for coupla of years. he's already started this season on a high and is already leading the pack for next ballon d'or awards with less than half the season gone.
|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by dayokanu(m): 6:54pm On Dec 02, 2009|
Some people need 6 months to confirm a player who has been stellar for 3 years and more SMH
|Re: Messi Wins Ballon D'or by ndcide(m): 3:50am On Dec 03, 2009|
any body can win. even very good players dont some times win. if he is so good, then, he wold keep a good form even with the fame.
what could be more than the world best footballer.
at his age he is quite an achiever. keeping ur form for a long time after such glory, to me is what makes a player world class/best
so i maintain. after six month i'll knw what to say.
if you doubt me ,go ask zidane.
