World Cup: Lionel Messi didn’t deserve Golden Ball, it was an error – Ex-FIFA President, Blatter.

Sepp Blatter, the former president of FIFA, has stated that Lionel Messi did not merit receiving the Golden Ball during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Because of his eye-catching performances at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, he was awarded the Golden Ball by the FIFA Committee as the best player of the tournament.

The former Barcelona player, according to Blatter, did not merit the honor.

The committee's decision, according to the former FIFA director, was incorrect.

In seven games, Messi guided Argentina to the tournament's championship game. He scored four goals and had seven assists.

However, he was unlucky because Mario Gotze's goal in extra time caused his team to lose to Germany 1-0.

Before Thomas Mueller, a German international, and Arjen Robben, a Dutch international, Messi was selected as the showpiece's best player.

"Should I be tactful or should I tell you the truth? He told AS, "Listen, when I saw Lionel Messi coming up for best player of the tournament, I was myself a little bit surprised."

He continued, "I believe the decision was incorrect."

Blatter said that when the committee told him their decision and that they had only considered ten of the finalist players, he was surprised.
