Argentine legend Lionel Messi is set to put up a strong fight for the upcoming Ballon d'Or Award 2023 ceremony. However, some media reports believe that Messi is set to extend his Ballon d'Or record.

The FIFA World Cup 2022-winning star Lionel Messi already holds the record for most Ballon d'Ors with seven awards. Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo is in the next place with five such awards.

While Ronaldo hasn't been nominated in the top 30 players list for the Ballon d'Or Award 2023, Messi is one of the favorites to win it on October 30, 2023.

SPORT recently reported that Messi would win the Ballon d'Or 2023, which would be his eighth Ballon d'Or award. In this case, Messi will have three more Ballon d'Ors than Ronaldo.

After winning the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar last December, the former Barcelona legend Messi left PSG last June and joined the MLS side Inter Miami last July.

In the 2022/23 season, Messi scored 38 goals and 25 assists in 54 on-field appearances. With 7 goals and 3 assists, Messi won the Golden Ball and Silver Boot in the successful FIFA World Cup 2022.

While the SPORT has a confident report on Messi's Ballon d'Or 2023 success, French and PSG star Kylian Mbappé and Manchester City's Norwegian star Erling Haaland will surely put up strong challenges.

Supporters of Rogan note that he didn't accuse Williams of using steroids and that it's absurd to take offence at remarks that weren't meant to be taken seriously.
