Carles Puyol’s Brilliant Dig At Ballon d'Or Result After Lionel Messi Brace

Barcelona legend Carles Puyol has sent out a brutal dig at France Football after Lionel Messi's brilliant performance against Espanyol.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner scored a superb free-kick in the first half to open the scoring for the Spanish club, as well as providing an assist for Ousmane Dembélé's fantastic finish.


In the second half, the 31-year-old Argentine ace scored another sublime free-kick.


Puyol has taken to Twitter after Barça's 4-0 thrashing of Espanyol to tweet about the Ballon d'Or, which Messi finished in fifth place for in this year's award.

"Anybody doubt who's the best? They don't need individual prizes..." he said in a rough translation.



Ernesto Valverde's side are top of La Liga and are three points clear of second-place Sevilla and third-place Atlético Madrid.



Should Messi have won the 2018 Ballon d'Or?
