Former Cameroonian international Samuel Eto’o wrote a congratulatory message on his Instagram account after Lionel Messi’s sixth coronation at the Ballon d’Or on Monday, December 2, 2019, in the evening.
“One more my son and my dear friend, you’re always the best,” the Cameroonian football star said. A message that, according to some, contradicts it.
Indeed, Samuel Eto’o had insisted during the FIFA The Best evening that the two African of Liverpool, Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah were the best of the year and deserve individual titles. On this shot of the golden ball, his reaction was really expected.
Argentina’s Lionel Messi was named the Golden Ball 2019 on Monday (December 2nd), succeeding Croatian Luka Modric.
Messi is now the record holder of the number of Golden Ball with six awards against five for Cristiano Ronaldo. Africans Sadio Mané and Mohamed Sallah are ranked 4 th and 5 th on the list.
