Why Lionel Messi Is A 5-Time Ballon D’Or Winner

Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi has won a record fifth Ballon D’Or in a recent ceremony held in Zurich. He has become the first official player to score this FIFA award five times to date, and his stellar performance over his professional career more than shows for it. 

Messi has now reclaimed the FIFA Ballon d’Or award for the world player of the year from his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo who had walked off with the award for the previous two years.
