While we will have to wait until Monday evening to officially know the name of the Ballon d’Or 2021, Pascal Ferré, editor-in-chief of France Football, gave an indication of the identity of the winner.
Only a few hours to wait before knowing the verdict of the Ballon d’Or 2021. Two years after the coronation of Lionel Messi, the last player to win the distinction awarded by France Football, the suspense is still in order as to the identity of the winner. Two names emerge, those of Robert lewandowski and Lionel messi, sixfold Golden Ball, and other players are outsiders like Karim Benzema and Jorginho.

Unsurprisingly, the first concerned was notified of his coronation. “The player is aware, we went to do a big interview, a shoot, it was done in all discretion, nobody noticed us, he was delighted, like all the winners every year! “, thus confided Pascal Ferré in an interview with Téléfoot. The editor-in-chief of France Football also gave a clue as to the identity of the winner. “Football fans will be delighted to learn the identity of the 65th Ballon d’Or. I’m convinced “, he said, not falling into the interviewer trap, eager to know if this is a first for the winner: ” Good try. “
But the time may not be for the new. Despite the service record of Robert Lewandowski, the best pyrotechnist in Europe with no less than 65 goals since the start of the season, the Spanish press is indeed convinced of a new coronation of Lionel Messi, who certainly did not panic the counters as in the past, whether with FC Barcelona and especially PSG, but the coronation of Argentina at the Copa America could have made the difference.
