Alba: The Golden Ball is a lie, Messi is the best in the world
The Catalans defender Jordi Alba believes that his teammate Lionel Messi must have got the Golden Ball.
This year, for the first time in 11 years, the Golden Ball was received by someone other than the Old Lady striker Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi, as the midfielder of Real, Luka Modric, won the award.
Thus, not surprisingly, a lot of conflicting conversations and opinions go around the award. Another such opinion was expressed by the Blaugrana’s performer Jordi Alba.
“The golden ball is a lie. A lot of clubs influence it, it is surrounded by massive PR campaigns in the media.”
“Everyone knows that at the moment the best player in the world is Messi,” Goal.com quotes Jordi Alba.
