FIFA’s Most Controversial Award

FIFA’s Most Controversial Award

Is the FIFA award for the Best male player taking the colouration of CAF award which has always been flawed with controversy in recent times? This 2019 award which goes to Lionel Messi is attracting huge debate as many football fans frown at the choice of the Argentine ahead of the duo of Cristiano Ronaldo and Virgil Van Dijk.

Those against the choice of Messi argue that he did nothing spectacular to deserve the award especially in the year the Copa America was played which ended for him in huge controversy.

FIFA with this award may have shot itself in the toes. This is the flagship award of FIFA which gives credibility to the world football governing body after the massive corruption scare that consumed the leadership of the body and even kept many big names in FBI custody for weeks. If the award continues to be tainted with controversy then FIFA may need to hire more image launders to clean up its image battered by this controversial award.

The fact that Ronaldo and Messi have dominated this award doesn’t imply that FIFA should use it as a alibi to turn a blind eye to the performance of other players giving their very best to the beautiful sport. It is now a clear fact that perhaps if the World Cup was not played in 2018, may be Luka Modric won’t have won this award last year.

Football is no longer played by name but by form, fitness and performance on the pitch plus loads of victories, medals, laurels and trophies. If we go by this then, it is really difficult to see why Messi was so decorated by this award.
