Lionel Messi winning the 2021 Ballon d’OR has been branded as total bullsh*t as a winner is yet to be announced, MySportDab reports.
The Argentine International was reported to be the winner of the best player for male category despite the award not being handed to him yet.

Lionel Messi is a serious contender to land the 2021 Ballon d’Or for the seventh time after winning the last one that was held in 2019.
The editor of France Football has rubbished “bullsh*t” reports claiming that the PSG man has already been informed that he is the winner of the award.
Despite many reports claiming otherwise, we will wait to see what happens when the award is given.
