“You Didn’t Deserve FIFA Best Award” – Ex-Ballon d’Or Winner Tells Messi

Lothar Matthäus, a former recipient of the Ballon d’Or, has expressed dissatisfaction with Lionel Messi, asserting that the Argentina captain was not deserving of the Best FIFA Award for 2023.

In comments made on Sky Deutschland, Matthaus maintained that Messi did not warrant the FIFA accolade and argued that Manchester City’s Erling Haaland should have been the rightful recipient of the prize.

Despite Matthäus’s opinion, Messi ultimately secured the FIFA Best Award, triumphing over Haaland in the 2023 competition.

“He can’t be the winner this time. I think he was the best footballer of the last 20 years, but he has been in Paris and Miami, where he is now creating hype, and not won any major titles,” Matthaus said.

“If you look at the great successes, there is no way past Manchester City and – when choosing the best player – Erling Haaland. He won the most important titles with Man City. His strike rate was impressive.

“That should be decisive when you choose the best and most important player – and that was Haaland.”
