Messi Suffers Worst Ballon D'or Ranking in 11 years. by januzaj(m): 9:56pm On Dec 03
Despite his dominance of the award alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, the Argentine has dropped down the list and finished outside the top three.

Lionel Messi has failed to make the top three of the Ballon d'Or for the first time since 2007, finishing fifth in this year's final vote.

Luka Modric is being tipped to become the first player not named Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo to claim the award since Kaka beat the pair to it 11 years ago.
Messi and Ronaldo have each won the Ballon d'Or five times, and while the Portuguese star once again looks likely to make the podium thanks to another Champions League crown with Real Madrid, the Argentine hero has dropped much further down the list.

France's World Cup heroes Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe appear to have collected enough votes to overtake the Barcelona icon, who won La Liga and the Copa del Rey in 2018 but was unable to make an impact in the Champions League or the international showpiece in Russia.

The Catalan side crashed out of the European competition at the quarter-final stage, while Argentina were knocked out of the World Cup by an Mbappe-led France in the second round.

For how many years will he keep being within 1st to 3rd? He has tried now, time to give way to the upcoming. So to me its not him suffering anything but time to hang the boot just like his predecessors!!

His era is coming to an end.
The hard truth is that they wanna use messi and Ronaldo to set history as players who both won balloon d' or each 5 times each. they won't win it again so as not to make any of them seem or appear better than the other due to the amount of time it has been won by both of them

Messi should be second or third to be honest.
People saying Messi or Ronaldo should've won should take a glass of water and stop watching only highlights
Messi is the GOAT yes we agree but you don't flop in UCL and world cup and expect to win.
Ronaldo only shined towards the end of last season and didn't even shine till the end.
Modric won all individual awards this year both private, public, media house and social media not just France Football

Football have passed the era of only 2 players. Let other players have a chance. For 10 good years, it has always been Messi and Ronaldo. Are we not yet tired hearing those names?
