Lionel Messi received his seventh Ballon d’Or medal on Monday, but the decision divided opinion and former Spain and Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas has made it clear he does not welcome her on social media.
The Argentine defeated Robert Lewandowski and Jorginho in the tournament, with two players – Bayern Munich and Chelsea – having more successful seasons than Messi and Barcelona.
“I find it hard to believe in these football awards,” Casillas wrote on social media.
“For me, Messi is one of the top five footballers who have ever been there but they have to start focusing on who is the best player for a particular season.
“It’s not that hard. Some just make it difficult, ”she concludes.
