Who will win the 2023 Ballon d’Or?
On the 20th (Korean time), the global soccer media’Score90’ announced the top 10 leading candidates by selecting 10 candidates for the 2023 Ballon d’Or award on its own.
Ballon d’Or is an award given to the player who performed the best through a vote by reporters from each country selected by ‘French Football’. It is evaluated as the most honorable individual award that an individual player can receive.
From 2022, Ballon d’Or has changed its evaluation on a seasonal basis rather than on an annual basis from January to December. Therefore, in the 2022 Ballon d’Or, voting was conducted based on the performance of the 2021-22 season. In addition, Ballon d’Or was previously voted for by 170 reporters, but only reporters ranked 100th in the FIFA rankings are eligible to strengthen professionalism and prevent fancy voting.
The 2023 Ballon d’Or will be awarded based on performance in the 2022-23 season. Even at the beginning of 2023, Lionel Messi’s award seemed promising. This is because the World Cup trophy, which was Messi’s only blemish (?), was resolved through the 2022 Qatar International Football Federation (FIFA) World Cup. After winning the World Cup, Messi began to be evaluated as surpassing Diego Maradona and Pele.
Even then, nobody doubted Messi’s award. It was because the player born in 1987 made a big success as a key player of the team in the World Cup. It was the stage where the best player in football history was born.토토사이트
But lately, the air current has been changing little by little. It’s because of Elling Holland. Haaland has shown unstoppable firepower since joining Manchester City this season. He has already booked the Premier League (EPL) top scorer as he scored 36 goals in 33 league matches.
If Holland’s performance was limited to the EPL, he would not have been compared to Messi. Man City, with Holland in front, is currently aiming for a treble. We are going to compete with Inter Milan for the top spot in Europe, and the FA Cup final against Manchester United remains. The EPL championship has already been confirmed. If Man City creates a treble, the evaluation of Holland, the main character of the treble, is bound to increase.
‘Score90’ also raised the hand of Haaland, who has been showing crazy performance throughout the season. Although Messi has won the World Cup, it is because his presence is not so great in Paris Saint-Germain. PSG was eliminated early in the European competition and has not been able to show overwhelming results in the league.
Third place was Real Madrid’s key Vinicius Junior, fourth place was Kylian Mbappe, who led France to the World Cup runner-up, and fifth place was Man City’s ace Kevin De Bruyne.
