Inter Miami fans witness Lionel Messi’s Ballon d’Or presentation

The eight-time Ballon d’Or winner and World Cup victor Lionel Messi is no stranger to displaying his medals in front of an audience. In the 2023 Ballon d’Or voting, the Argentine team defeated Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland. Following their historic and record-breaking eighth-place finish, Lionel Messi’s team, Inter Miami, witnessed the same in a stunning ceremony.

Given Inter Miami‘s low standing in European football, a return to Europe seems improbable. The Argentine is therefore unlikely to win another Ballon d’Or. But the DRV PNK Stadium saw his most recent, breathtaking greeting to the Argentine following his honor.

A golden carpet escorted the player to the middle of the pitch as he emerged from the tunnel to applause. As a result, club representatives greeted him and gave him congrats on his victory. He took in the thunderous applause from the home crowd as they held up torches to set a stunning atmosphere for Messi’s eighth Ballon d’Or. Before addressing the supporters, he gave his prize to the assembly.

In the stadium, celebrating his historic Ballon d’Or victory, home fans were treated to a speech by an ecstatic Lionel Messi. The Argentine is excited for his first full season with the David Beckham-owned team after a “disappointing” conclusion to his debut year at Miami. Messi took the time to express gratitude to the supporters for this “beautiful ceremony” and to mention how special it was for him to share the victory with them.

Before his injury in August, Messi was a powerhouse for the team, winning every game. In 14 games for the team, he put in 11 goals and assisted on five more. Lionel Messi emphasized that crucial competitions await them the following season. He urged the audience to support him for the next season as he wrapped up.
