Ronaldo wrong choice for Ballon d'Or claims Messi's brother

Football News

The brother of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has sparked a FIFA Ballon d'Or debate after appearing to mock Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo on Twitter, reports the Daily Mail.

Matias Messi tweeted a picture of his sibling surrounded by trophies, to highlight just how successful he has been over the past four years.

He followed that up with another graphic to expose the Portuguese international's comparatively small collection of individual and collective team accolades during the same period since 2009.

Despite their impressive form in 2013, neither Ronaldo or Messi are favourites with the bookies to win this year's prestigious prize, with Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery tipped to take the trophy.

Voting is set to close later on Friday. Leave a comment if you want to see the Argentine claim an unprecedented five FIFA Ballon d'Or awards, and beat the likes of Ronaldo, Ribery and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the coveted title.
