Here Is Cristiano Ronaldo’s Reaction After Messi Won FIFA Best Player Award

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Reaction After Messi Won FIFA. Argentina captain and Inter Miami forward Lionel Messi made more history last night as he bagged the FIFA Best Player Award for a record extending third time. Messi pipped Manchester City and Norwegian striker Erling Halaand to the award with France captain and PSG striker Kylian Mbappe coming in third.

It should be recalled that the voting period considered was between
December 19, 2022 and August 20, 2023. Apparently, Messi in that time period won the Ligue 1 with PSG before moving to the MLS where he guided Inter Miami to their first ever trophy, the Leagues Cup scoring 10 goals.

Halaand meanwhile in that timeframe won a treble and scored 30 goals in all competitions. However, none of the trio was present. It should be noted that this award is voted for by national team captains.

As Al Nassr forward and Portugal captain, Ronaldo has become renowned for social media controversy whenever Messi wins an award, he didn’t pass up the opportunity. He took to his Instagram and posted a photo of himself saying that he’s back for more.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola was named the best manager after guiding City to the famous treble last season. Speaking about the award, the Spaniard said that

“I want to share this trophy and moment with our owners at Manchester City.

“On behalf of my backroom staff and myself, I want to say thank you so much to our players, that they have done for this club for eight years already together, without exception all of them.
“Thanks so much for this incredible journey because they don’t know what it means every morning to go there and live with them, winning or losing it doesn’t matter – living with them has been incredible.”

Additionally, the Citizens had six players in the FIFPRO best 11. They were defenders John Stones, Kyle Walker and Ruben Dias, midfielders Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne and striker Erling Haaland. Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior were also included in the team.

The other spots were completed by Thibaut Courtois, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe. Despite being named in the FIFPRO, Courtois was beaten to the best goalkeeper award by Ederson Morales. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Reaction After Messi Won FIFA
