Ballon d’Or: Cassano reveals the biggest scandal in history

The decision to award the Ballon d’Or again to Lionel Messi has been the subject of much debate in recent days. According to many, the Argentine star did not deserve to receive the Ballon d’Or once again in 2021.

On the other hand, many would have seen in Robert Lewandowski the legitimate winner and this, especially after he was refused the chance to put in his trophy cabinet a Ballon d’Or that no one could have taken from him in 2020, in reason for the non-awarding of the prize following the Covid-19.

Antonio Cassano, on the microphone of “Bobo TV”, explained that in his opinion, the Polish bomber deserved the award last year.

“In 2020, France Football should have given the Ballon d’Or to Robert Lewandowski, because that season he was by far the strongest player. He was above all and all, in terms of collective victories He won it all, even breaking Gerd Muller’s record. In 2020, the Ballon d’Or should have been awarded exclusively to Lewandowski and Messi, who is a smart boy with a unique humility, said so on stage in front of millions of people. “

Maldini rather than Cannavaro

According to Cassano, however, it is not fair to criticize the decision to award the Ballon d’Or for 2021 to Messi and indeed, according to him, the real mistake was to award the Ballon d’Or to d. other players like Sammer and Cannavaro in the past.

“These days there is talk of a scandal in the newspapers, but do you know what the real scandal is? It was to have given the Ballon d’Or to Sammer or Cannavaro and not to Maldini. Maldini argued eight Champions League finals, he played for 25 years at the top level, while Sammer and Cannavaro only made one month at this level. The two together don’t do as much as Maldini did in the story. That’s the biggest scandal. “
