Lionel Messi lifted his sixth Ballon d'Or on Tuesday and took a lead in the 'G.O.A.T' race against Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi managed to sideline Virgil van Dijk, who was considered as one of the favourites to lift the glorious award in France on November 3, 2019. Cristiano Ronaldo was placed third in the list and that seems like one of the reasons behind him missing the grand event. It seems like Ronaldo got a hint that he'll not be receiving the award beforehand.

Ronaldo, in his speech, stated that he is proud to be named as the best player in Serie A. He is thankful for his teammates and everyone who voted for him. He also added that he will work hard to receive the award next year. Both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo missed the Ballon d'Or in 2018 when Luca Modric was announced as the winner. It seems like the greats of the game have stopped celebrating each other's glories.
