The debate around the next Golden Ball is already raging. With a big favorite: Lionel Messi. Barça has yet delivered a very unspecified season between an elimination from the knockout stages in the Champions League and a third place in La Liga. But the Barcelona No.10 survived, finishing in particular top scorer in the championship with 30 goals. Above all, the Argentine delivered a real recital at the Copa America, securing his first title with the Albiceleste thanks to a success against Brazil in the final. A coronation embellished with the titles of best player, best passer and best player of the competition.

Feats of arms which did not convince Tony Yoka. The Olympic champion has indeed interfered in the debate by rebelling violently at the idea of seeing Lionel Messi win a new Golden Ball after this season. “Messi Ballon d’Or (laughing emojis). If he wins it, it will be the ugliest and most busted Ballon d’Or in history. Winning the Golden Ball with such a bad season, scoring goals that didn’t win your team anything, zero goals against Real Madrid for four years, zero goals against Atlético de Madrid, zero against the greats clubs nothing. Thank you Eibar, Osasuna and Getafe. PS: For those who tell me about the Copa America, this competition with two groups of five teams, where the first four are directly qualified in… quarter-finals! You have no shame ? “, he wrote in a long message posted on Instagram.
An attack in order which did not fail to react. And not just because some of his arguments are wrong. Contrary to what he writes in his rant against Lionel Messi, the latter did not score 29 goals but 30 and especially while ensuring that 24 of his goals had been scored against the last seven of La Liga, the Argentine in fact only scored 11 goals against teams in the bottom third of the table. Internet users have especially reminded him of his personal record between his extramarital affairs, his one-year suspension and especially the pedigree of his opponents since the Olympic champion launched his professional career.

Yoka, he plays in which club already? Why is he afraid that Messi will steal the golden ball from him?
It is sure that he who has been facing only braces for 4 years, not 3 years because he took 1 year for doping, is not ready to be talked about by his record.

I think of Yoka who develops a paragraph argued against Messi while the latter lives his best moments with his wife on a paradise island
