After Argentina’s Lionel Messi won the Fifa Best Men’s Player of the Year 2023 title, Cristiano Ronaldo, a soccer player for Portugal, posted a mysterious picture of himself working with Al Nassr on his Instagram account. The picture quickly went viral.
It is important to note that Messi won the prize for a record-tying third time, narrowly defeating Erling Haaland of Manchester City. Kylian Mbappe came in third.
Messi and Haaland were deadlocked for the most points after the Fifa voting process, but Messi prevailed because the leaders of the national teams gave him more votes.
Many were taken aback by the decision, since they had been evaluating his regular work from the award-considering period of December 19, 2022, to August 20, 2023.
Haaland is said to have had a good position during that time, scoring 30 goals and winning a historic treble with Manchester City.
In response to Ronaldo’s message, online users expressed their opinion that Ronaldo was a more worthy recipient of the FIFA Best Player title.
Ronaldo had a fantastic 2023 season, averaging a goal per 96 minutes while scoring 54 goals and dishing out 15 assists for Portugal and Al Nassr in all competitions.
