Messi wins fourth FIFA Ballon d’Or

messi wins fourth ballon dor

Lionel Messi has won for the fourth time in a row the FIFA Ballon d’Or award. This is an incredible feat for the Barca player and puts him in his own special club.

Without a shadow of a doubt, Leo is the best player in the world and this 2012 FIFA Ballon d’Or trophy is the icing on the cake for the Argentine.

25 year old Lionel Messi has thus become the first player in history to achieve four Ballon d’Or awards and the Argentine has achieved them all consecutively, leaving no doubt about his dominance of world football at the moment.

Backed by a record score of 90 goals in 2012, some memorable performances and these four titles with achieved while at FC Barcelona, ‘The Flea’ has become a living legend in the greatest sense of all.

It was neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Andres Iniesta. It seems that Messi himself is the one that sets his limits as to what he can achieve. With this award, the Barca player outperforms other greats in the history of world football. The supremacy of Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten and Michel Platini – all with three awards, has been beaten by the little Argentine.

From now on, Lionel Messi is a footballing reference and because the Argentine seems fit enough to prolong his reign by many years, just how long will he keep breaking records?

Vicente del Bosque claimed the 2012 Ballon d’Or for best coach of 2012 beating Jose Mourinho to the top spot.
