Jason Cundy, a former Chelsea defender, has stated that it would be a shame if Lionel Messi, the captain of Argentina, won the 2023 Ballon d’Or.
Cundy thinks that Erling Haaland of Manchester City should win this year’s Ballon d’Or.
In a few weeks, we’ll find out who took home the 2023 Ballon d’Or.
Messi, Haaland, and Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain are the most likely candidates to win the title for best player.
It would be a disgrace if Haaland didn’t win the Ballon d’Or, Cundy stated on talkSPORT.
Messi will win it because he won the World Cup, but I still believe it’s a travesty.
Messi and Haaland both had fantastic 2022–2023 campaigns.
While Haaland won the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League with Manchester City, the forward for Inter Miami won the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and the French Ligue 1 title with PSG before leaving the club in the summer.
