2023 Ballon D’or: Messi, Erling Haaland Headline Shortlist Of Nominees by Ashleyokeneye(f): 1:28pm On Sep 08, 2023
The 2023 Ballon d'Or will be the 67th annual ceremony of the Ballon d'Or, presented by France Football magazine, recognizing the best footballers in the world in the 2022–23 season. The winner of the men’s and women’s awards will be announced on 30 October in Paris.

Will the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi add number eight to his name? Or will Manchester City's goal machine Erling Haaland win the most prestigious individual football award for the first time? The Argentina captain led his country to victory in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and on the club level, he won the Ligue 1 title with Paris Saint-Germain. Meanwhile, Haaland secured a historic treble with Manchester City, scoring 52 goals across all competitions in his debut season for the club.

With Argentina’s World Cup triumph and Manchester City’s Champions League, Premier League, and FA Cup titles, it's no surprise that the award shortlist is dominated by players from Argentina and Manchester City. Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has been omitted for the first time since 2003.

For the Ballon d'Or Feminin, Spain’s Aitana Bonmati stands out as the favourite after a season that saw her leading La Roja to their first-ever World Cup victory and winning the Champions League with FC Barcelona. The winners will be announced at the Ballon d’Or ceremony, which will take place on 30 October at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris. The full list of the male nominee for the 2023 Ballon D’or includes;
• André Onana - Inter-Manchester United/Cameroon

Lionel Messi was outstanding. Erling Haaland too was outstanding.


But outstanding pass outstanding. So Messi deserves the award more based on overall performance n team work/contribution. Last I checked, ballon dor is not determined only by goals.

So if it's only by goals, will defenders and midfielders like cannavaro and others win ballon dor. U are d one running away from fact. Maybe coz u are anti-messi. Coz every true football fan without bias will see d wonders Messi have been performing to deserved ballon dor.


Haaland performed well but his performance is not up to Messi level. Haaland played 8 finals and semi finals, he had 0 goals, 0 assists, 0 motm, etc

If not that they are blinded by sentiment, how many trophy can Haaland boast of wen he was in Germany ? It was wen he got to man city and got d help of gundogan, KDB, bernado Silva, foden, rodri etc that he began winning trophies.



Even man city fans know deep down dat without those players Haaland will not shine. Haaland is just like Alvarez who won everything, just that he has more goals than Alvarez.


Apart from scoring goals , wat else does haaland do well ?

Winning world cup and world cup golden ball is a past glory? Winning Ligue 1 is a past glory? Winning French cup and Finalisima is a past glory. He won one again with Inter Miami, though not counted for this year. If all these are past glory, then what is other players apart from Haaland doing on the list? You should have nominated Haalland alone. Take it to your head, Balondor is not won by emotion but by popularity and acheivements. For me and other reasonable ones, I will take Messi achievement last year ahead of Haalland.

The awards are for the combinations of last season achievement and present. He has collected the old glory awards already. I'm a fan Messi take note
