Kaka: Messi Should Win The Ballon D’or What;s Your Opinion?

AC Milan and Brazil ace Kaka has revealed he would like to see Barcelona star Lionel Messi win the Ballon d’Or.

Kaka wants the Argentina forward to win the award ahead of Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo this year.

“Messi is a truly great player. Cristiano Ronaldo is also very good and deserves the away, but I want Leo to be my successor,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He has incredible ability and can control the ball superbly and that makes him one of the best players in the world.

“I think he is the sort of player that you would always want in your team.

“I am only talking about this year. My aim is to recover my form as quickly as possible and to try and win th trophy again in Paris and the FIFA World Player of the Year in Zürich.

“But for that to happen I have to be playing at a consistently good level for Milan.”

Ronaldo the Ballon d'Or winner??

The Manchester United winger was pictured with the Ballon d’Or trophy yesterday.

France Football magazine, who run the award, sent their photographers to Manchester to get the shot in readiness for next week’s(tuesday) announcement.

Ronaldo, 23, will become the first United player to win it since George Best 40 years ago.

Even his closest contender for the title Barcelona’s Lionel Messi backs the decision.

Messi said: “He won the Champions League, the Premier League as well, so I think he will be awarded the prize.”

Ronaldo hit 42 goals last term and Manchester City rival Robinho (right) reckons he should be World Player of the Year too.

He said: “Cristiano is one of the best players in the world. I’m sure he will win the FIFA award this year. He deserves it.”

This season Messi already scored 13 goals (7+5+1), made 12 assists (9+3+0) in 16 matches! He's undoubtedly the most decisive player of the world right now.

Villareal captain marcus Senna has this to say

Quote

“Cristiano is a great player and I once said he made up 50 per cent of United’s strike force,” said Senna.

“Now I think I over-rated his importance. When Cristiano does not score, his role is limited. Yes, he is fast, but countless step-overs are not necessarily productive.”

With Ronaldo's dominance last season, he would win every football award in Europe.

When u win the :

Barclays Player Of the Year.

FIFPro player of the year

Premiership's golden boot.

UCL golden boot.

European golden shoe.

UEFA club forward of the year.

UEFA club footballer of the year.

Nobody has this track record in a single season in world football history. Be thankful you are alive to witness Ronaldo.

The single most important factor is. . . . . .Ronaldo won UEFA's best player in 2007/8 season.

If he didn't perform against the big teams, he wouldn't have won it.

I wonder why Mr Messi didn't win the best player despite dribbling Scholes and Evra 50000 times in 90 minutes.

Essien was made useless and yet someone came here to say he doesnt play well against the top teams.

what do they want him to do? score 59 goals?

Human beings can be wicked o!what he has done, no winger and even few strikers have done it and yet they are here postulating big game theories up and down

He was skipping past Essien like Essien wasn't even there.

Some Chelsea fans kept saying this was because Essien wasn't a natural full back.

True but that was the exact position he played against Liverpool and Fernebache so why did it go wrong against Man Utd??

Ronaldo was too good on the day and played a disciplined role. . . . He hugged the flanks tightly and if Tevez n Carrick wasn't wasteful. . . .We coulda scored 3 goals in the first half.

Zidane scored just 2 goals in France 98 but his strikers did their part while he supplied them.

Messi did his part, e dribbled Scholes and Evra silly but Etoo and co could not profit from it.

Why not tell Messi to go and defend Scholes shot when Zambrotta gave Scholes an assist to score?

When Ronaldo could not even beat Arne friedrich for once in 90 minutes nor can he supply a decent pass. Even defending set pieces,

He was supposed to mark klose for the second goal and he failed. he effectively ruined his national team.

TKB,

You were too drunk to notice anything that night. Remember you slept at Heineken center at habibu Oki that night. Abi I lie?

Why didn't he finish off himself??

Ronaldo did not have to wait for Tevez/Saha/Rooney to score 31 league goals.

When Messi realised Etoo and Bojan were dorks, he shoulda taken it upon himself to do the magic.

We all saw Zidane in France 98 scoring 2 good goals and dictating play when the strikers weren't up to it.

Are you OK? Sporting, lyon, and Roma are not big teams else CFR Cluj, PSV and Benfica too are Big teams.

The four combined together how many Champs leagues do they have? Zilch I think.

Messi does not do it everyday. But he does it frequently against the big teams.

Ronaldo hardly does. scoring is not the same as a good performance else Xavi won't be the best player of the last Euro cup.

Else Adebayor would be more important than Cesc.

You obviously did not watch the Barca vs Man Utd game. While Messi was running the show, Ronaldo was wailing to the ref.

The inability of Strikers to finish off let him down.

I didn't see his damage against Man Utd and certainly not against Real Madrid when they lost 4-1 last season.

He scored against Milan at OT!!!

He scored against Chelsea, Roma, Lyon, Sporting, and bagged 42 goals in 48 apperances last season.

Messi needs 200 games to score 42 goals in a season.

Messi does it against everyone, He does valadolid the way he does chelsea, He does Getafe the way he does Real madrid.

Why cant Ronaldo perform against Milan like he does against Fulham? why cant he perform against Germany like he does kazakhstan?

Yet we are made to believe Ronaldo only shines against smaller teams.

Valladolid and Getafe must be top European teams who have won 5 UCLs each.

What happened against Milan, Barca vs Germany where a second rate defender Arne Friedrich pocketed him?

Messi is the ultimate. No one can stop him at best they can foul him.

Go and watch last weekends games wher his mazy runs decimated Valladolid. His slide rule pass won the Olympics,

His Run against Getafe was compared to Maradonas run against ENGLAND in 1986.

And he did not win the player of the year despite being the best player in the Champions league of 2002!!!!

Zidane did not make top 50 in Japan/Korea 2002 world cup.

Messi can score 6000 goals in El Classico(how many did he score against Man Utd even with 80% possession they had??) Nuthing.

Ronaldo put in a stellar performance against Lyon, Roma and Chelsea. . . . .

A winger that outscored all the strikers in Europe in the league and the UCL is dynamite. . . . .Messi would be flattered to hear people are placing him ahead of Ronaldo. . . . .He knows he cannot be compared to Ronnie.

Aerially, pace, shots, dead balls(Messi would pale in these departments).

Messi scored a hat trick at the El classico. Played Chelsea to a standstill in the UCL.

Can you give me any big game Ronaldo played well? You would say UCL final because he scored a goal. After the first half, he was made quiet!!

A player who could not make top 23 in the biggest tournament of the year!!!!

@Coolguyz,

Here yourself speak!! You agree Ronaldo disappears against big teams and on the international stage yet you feel he should be player of the year.

He went to a major tournament and he did not make the top 23!!!!!

Check Leo Messi, Strong in big games and internationally This season from August till now Messi has been awesome while Ronaldo has been non-existent.

Messi all the way!!!! Even Thierry Henry endorses him!!

@ Bitchboy,

The way you write reflects your state of mind. . . . . .

You cannot even write coherently for someone to understand.

No paragraph, no spacing, no comma. no fullstop. . . .

I would have loved to continue this debate but the asinine comments and vacuous reasoning u have showed is disgraceful. . . .

The money spent on u shoulda been used to buy prophylactics to prevent accidents like u from happening. . . .

I am sorry for ur bleak future.

How u managed to finish primary school with your reasoning must be the 8th wonder of the world

Ask ur guardian if u ever dropped from ur bamboo cot when u were a tot!!!

what does a persons IQ have to do with his knowledge of the existence of a french football magazine?apparently ur the one with low IQ.like i said before, ur IQ is at par with that of an intoxicated mag.got. dayokanu and debosky had never heard of it before, they must have low IQ as well. !

and ur village in zamfara has been in existence since God said "let there be light", it must be very popular.more evidence to prove how non-existent ur IQ is.

after realizing the gigantic goof u made by saying zidane was the european footballer of the year in 2001, you probably ran to google and typed "zidane european footballer of the year 2001" and came across the onze dor award.then u come here and use it to justify ur humongous blunder. . . . ur clutching at capri-sone straws! slowpoke!

its amazing how u manage to say so much without actually saying anything at all.how does all the crap above justify ur daft claim that a person who says "adebayor was the african footballer of the year in 2007" has not goofed?

how does my statement insinuate in any way that the number of football magazines in existence reduces the credibility of the onze dor/ballon dor? since u have the same IQ as maggots, let me explain to u

it means if someone says "player A was named european footballer of the year in 1800", without specifying what body/magazine gave the award, it has to be assumed the person(or in your case, 'the hyena') is talking about the ballon d'or sice it is the MOST RECOGNIZED of all.

well i don't expect u to get that. . . u were never given a chance from day 1.

u were FINISHED as soon as ur biological mother(have you met the LovePeddler yet?) put u in a poly-bag and dumped u in the trash (9 months after being gang-banged by an slowpoke, two morons, and three autistic retards).and the two pedophilic gays(ur 'dads') who picked u up didnt help matters.while other babies were being bosom-fed, u were being manliness-FED..

and now as a result,while other peoples hearts pump blood, urs pumps Fluid.instead of white/red blood cells,blood pressure etc, u have 'white Fluid cells' and 'red Fluid cells', and ur 'Fluid pressure' seems to be off the charts judging by ur ridiculous posts.

anyway, i'm done wasting time on a nonentity like u, its really not worth it.i'm about to go watch me some good footie.

by the time i get back u would prolly have typed more pointless absurdities which u call ur posts.but be rest assured my response would be brief(i have now concluded ur not worthy of any reply more than a paragraph long).

that is, if i respond at all.

Lippi is going senile!!!

He thinks Ibrahimovic has to win a major tournament to be considered the best and yet he thinks Messi deserves it over Ronaldo(Best player in UEFA/Prem), winner of UEFA/EPL??

EPL alone is more prestigious than the age-grade Olympic games.

I wonder how Amodu Shuaib/Berti Vogts didn't nominate Chrisantus as Best player in Africa when he won the golden boot in 2007.

For the first time since 2000, Henry didn't make the shortlist.

Eto'o on the list? I disagree. Methinks Muntari deserves a spot ahead of Eto'o.

How can u assume i meant Ballon d"Or when i mentioned Zidane was the european player of the year??

If u had any sense in ur empty head, u shoulda asked NOT assume!!!!

BBC awarded Adebayor as African Player of the year in 2007 while CAF gave it to Kanoute. . . . . .

If someone comes here to say Adebayor was the African player of the year in 2007. . . . .Would u say he goofed??
