48 hours after winning it, Lionel Messi waved the Ballon d’Or to the faithful of the Parc des Princes.
It was party night at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday. For the pre-match of the Paris SG – Nice meeting, a special event was hastily organized by the Ile-de-France club. Namely the presentation of the Ballon d’Or to the Parisian public. Barely 48 hours after having conquered it, and as it was expected, Lionel Messi therefore came to show the trophy to the supporters.
Messi shares his joy with the Parisian public
There was uncertainty as to the presence of the Argentine at this meeting, due to gastroenteritis syndrome. Finally, he quickly recovered from this concern. For the opposition against the Azureans, he was able to take his place. And before the game, it was with a smile and a face radiant with happiness that he waved the Ballon d’Or to the faithful of the Park. The seventh in his personal collection, but the very first he won as a PSG player. He is also the first representative of the French capital team to obtain this award. George Weah could have had this honor in 1995, but he left the City of Lights during the offseason to join AC Milan.

Note that originally, Paris had imagined organizing a celebration on December 12 for the duel against Monaco, but this date was considered too far from the coronation and that evening the Auteuil turn has a good chance of being closed. by the disciplinary committee of the League because of the 531 pyrotechnic devices burned against Nantes (3-1, November 20). Another element that could have pushed to postpone this moment of celebration is that the merchandising department was not able to produce special products for the event. In the end, it was judged that it was not that bad. Note that this Wednesday the two official club shops and the entrance to the stadium are adorned with photos of La Pulga.
