The obtaining of the seventh Ballon d’Or for Lionel Messi still has something to talk about. The exporter Iker Casillas and the Real Madrid player were against the delivery of the trophy to the ‘Pulga’. They have been joined by the ‘White House’ goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois.

The Belgian goalkeeper mentioned that to choose the winner of the long-awaited award it is always evaluated that the player has achieved a championship and not his performance in the year. In addition, he mentioned that his favorite was his partner Karim Benzema.

“Karim deserves it, but it is a rare title, because if you see the people who are at the top, it is because they have won the America’s Cup, the European Championship or the Champions League. It’s always like this, they only see that, they don’t look all year long. We hope to win titles this year and for (Benzema) to win it next year “, said for Movistar Deportes after the victory against Athletic Club.

The same thought has the coach of Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti, who believes that the French forward deserved the Ballon d’Or. “For all the madridismo it deserves it. Hopefully I win it next year”, He mentioned after his last game.

“TI have respect because Lionel Messi is one of the best, but if he had voted, he would have voted for Benzema”Said the Italian strategist before the Real Madrid game against Athletic Club. Only a few hours later, with the performance of the ‘Gato’ who scored the winning goal, he confirmed his initial position.
