Famous football striker, Lionel Messi has taken to Instagram to celebrate winning his 7th Ballon D’or last weekend. The elated Paris Saint Germaine striker noted that he could not hide his joy after winning the award for the seventh time.
Recall that Messi ousted Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandoski and other top players across the globe to clinch the title for the 7th time in France.
The Paris Saint Germaine (PSG) player wrote:
Although I always put the collective forward, I cannot hide my joy at having been able to win another Ballon d'Or. I want to thank you and dedicate to all my colleagues and @afaseleccion staff for the beautiful year we are living. Also those I had at @fcbarcelona and those at @psg. And of course to my family and friends, as well as to all the people who support me, who are next to me, take care of me and make me perform every day: without all of them this would never have been possible. And thanks also to @francefootball for the Gala and the award. Big hug!!!
