Sampaoli: The Ballon d’Or should always be for Messi

Real Madrid star man Cris­tiano Ronal­do have recent­ly received the Bal­lon d’Or award. Sevil­la coach Jorge Sam­paoli have opened up on the award while speak­ing to the press ahead of the week­end game. He stressed that Lionel Mes­si deserve the award more than the Por­tuguese man.

No doubt, Cris­tiano Ronal­do deserve any award you give to him. But the truth is that there’s a huge dif­fer­ence between Mes­si and oth­er play­ers. The Bal­lon d’Or should always be for Mes­si while oth­er play­ers com­pete for oth­er awards,” said Sam­paoli.

The Sevil­la coach also talked on the video replay recent­ly applied dur­ing games which was high­ly exag­ger­at­ed in the FIFA Club World Cup. “The tech­nol­o­gy we’ve seen in recent games is chang­ing our sport into a dif­fer­ent one that we used to know. It is obvi­ous­ly not foot­ball that we are used to. New rules of the game has more to do with tech­nol­o­gy than the game we are used to enjoy­ing.  It only reduce the spir­it of the game and makes it less intense.”
