FC Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde does not understand that Lionel Messi Monday night at the Golden Ball-election not to the three finalists belonged, and the fifth ended.
The quintuple winner of the prestigious award, organised by France Football, was the winner Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé for themselves. He fell for the first time in twelve years outside the top three.
“I congratulate Modric with his Golden Ball, but it is absurd that Messi has only reached the fifth place. Further, I would like me not to engage in the debate about the value of the price,” said Valverde Tuesday night at a press conference.
