Messi Super Ballon d’Or 2023: After settling the GOAT debate, Argentine & PSG superstar has set his eyes on Super Ballon D’Or.

The last and only footballer to win the award was Alfredo Di Stefano back in 1989. With two golden balls in FIFA World Cup, winning 42 trophies across country and clubs including the FIFA World Cup Qatar, Messi is now the favourite to become only the 2nd in history to win the Super Ballon D’Or. Follow Football LIVE & Ballon D’Or LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.
