Alleged data leak at Ballon d’Or election causes a stir

Will Lionel Messi win his seventh golden ball?


An alleged data leak causes discussions before the Ballon d’Or is awarded. Several lists of winners are circulating on Twitter – but which one is the right one? We have «researched». Attention satire.

Bad exposure, blurry letters and a French headline. Is the photo posted by Twitter user «Jeboisdeleauu» (in German: I drink water) actually the leaked list of winners of the Ballon d’Or?

It almost has to be like that, after all, it doesn’t say “france football” in the headline for nothing. And: the sheet is folded! Because it was already in the pocket of an L’Équipe editor. It is obvious.

So the thing is eaten. Robert Lewandowski will receive the coveted trophy on November 29th. In the ranking he wins ahead of Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema. But there was something …

Exactly, an even blurred photo. In addition, the heading “france football” is a lot bigger. So much more trustworthy. The problem: This time Lionel Messi wins the award.

Well, now you could of course argue about which is the real leak. Fortunately, the certainly impartial Twitter user «TotalMessi» provides us with a text about the picture. And it says: “According to a new leak”, or in German: “According to a new leak”. Obviously, the gentleman “I’m drinking water” grabbed the document before the votes were all counted. Well

As research by blue Sport has now shown, “TotalMessi” is also not in possession of the most current document. Our editorial team recently got hold of this for this purpose. Accordingly, the results of the Ballon d’Or 2021 are as follows:

Yann Sommer rightly clears it up. Also worth seeing is the entry at number five on the list.

Yann Sommer in front of Breel Embolo and Michi Frey. Who would have thought? Incredible and certainly not true. It would definitely be nice. The real winner won’t be there until the end of November.
