Does Messi deserve the “Super Ballon d’Or” – the rarest award ever given only once? – World football

For years, the Ballon d’Or, given after a poll by France Football, has been considered the most prestigious individual football award. But what does adding the word “Super” in front of it do.

The first “Golden Ball” was awarded in 1956, after which the award fell into the hands of a constellation of football stars.

However, only one has won the “Super Ballon d’Or” – Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stefano. He played a key role in the Whites’ five consecutive triumphs for the European Champions Cup, the father of the Champions League. This happens between 1956-1960. Di Stefano scored 308 goals as a Real player and won the Ballon d’Or in 1957 and 1959.

Years later, in 1989, France Football recognized his enormous success with a special rare award that has not been awarded to this day – the “Super Ballon d’Or”. It was given on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the birth of the authoritative publication, with only European footballers nominated. Apart from Di Stefano – Johan Cruyff and Michel Platini.

The “Super Gold Ball” is similar to the normal ball, but it is larger and has many smaller candy-like gold balls at the base.

The super rare trophy was put on display in the Real Madrid museum and stayed there until 2021 when it was put up for auction.

Lionel Messi won the World Cup with Argentina and, according to many fans, became the greatest football player of all time. A discussion has started on social media as to whether France Football should come up with a special rare award to honor Messi’s huge achievements. La Pulga is the record holder for “Golden Balls” – he has seven in his collection.

Di Stefano receives the “Super Ballon d’Or” as the best of the last three decades, and this is exactly what his fans point to in order to justify their call for Messi to receive a rare, special award, even more prestigious than the Ballon d’Or.
