messi So magic messi wins the Ballon d’Or was this the right choice we think so.Messi has fought off competition from the likes of Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka to win the 2009 award.

The 22-year-old finished ahead of last year’s winner Cristiano Ronaldo by a record 240-point margin, with his Barcelona team mate Xavi in third.

Messi becomes the first Argentine to win the Ballon d’Or, although Argentine-born players Alfredo di Stefano and Omar Sivori, then regarded as Europeans, received the trophy when it was still called the European Footballler of the Year award.

It’s a great honour for me to be voted as the winner and to become the first Argentine in history to receive this award,” Messi was quoted as saying on the France Football website.

The award caps a brilliant year for the soft-spoken left-footer, who helped treble-winning Barcelona lift the Champions League title with nine goals, as well as bagging 23 in the league and six in the King’s Cup.

“I knew I was among the favourites, because Barca have had a prolific year and we won everything, but I didn’t expect to win it by such an important margin,” Messi added.

The award’s 96 jurors gave Messi 473 points out of a possible 480, a near unanimous verdict, the magazine said.

At the end of day you have to agree he is the best at the moment here are some of this magical moments in 2009
