'We All Know Messi Is Better Than Ronaldo' - Nigerians React As Barcelona Living Legend Clinches 6th Ballon D'or
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has won the 2019 Ballon d'Or, beating Virgil van Dijk, Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane to the accolade on Monday night.

The Argentina captain won the award for the sixth time, one more than his great Portuguese rival, Juventus striker Ronaldo.

Messi first won the Ballon d'Or a decade ago and was also named the best player on the planet in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

The 32-year-old netted 36 goals in 34 La Liga matches last season, helping Barcelona to win the title and was influential as they reached the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League, scoring 12 goals in 10 games.

Majority of Nigerian football fans were delighted that Messi won the award and took to Twitter to share their thoughts :

@Oyewolestephe06 : ''I watch Neymar to see dribbling, I watch Ronaldo and Lewandoski to see scoring goals, I watch Debruyne and Alacantra to see playing makers. But when I want to watch all these together, I'll just watch the 6th time balloon d'or winner Leo Messi. #MESSIX G. O. A. T''
