Marcelino and Kroos get fully involved in the Ballon d’Or controversy

The controversy continues with the Ballon d’Or awarded by France Football magazine to Lionel Messi. The Argentine has won the 2021 edition, but many people think it is undeserved. The last to give their opinion have been two members of our League: his teammate Toni Kroos and the Athletic Club coach, Marcelino García Toral.

Toni Kroos has spoken on his podcast ‘Einfach mal luppen’: “First of all, I must say that I am not interested in individual awards at all. However, if there are, they should be fair. In my opinion, this is not the case at all. For me, Benzema would have been the number 1 if you were really picking the best individual player from last year, because I see closely how exceptional he is. There is no doubt that Messi stands next to Cristiano Ronaldo as the player of this decade and has qualities that others will never have. failure in the election is above all the first place “

Of course, Kroos politely congratulated Messi on his award:

On the other hand there is tomorrow’s rival in the postponed match between Real Madrid and Athletic. In the previous one, the coach of the Basque team, Marcelino, spoke. He would also have chosen Benzema: “He may have given Benzema the ballon d’or, but maybe also Lewandowski, which also had a spectacular year. It is so difficult to establish who is the best that I respect any decision on that subject. But, wondering about Benzema, he is spectacular because he is capable of creating and finishing “.
