Atlanta star Thiago Almada says Lionel Miami critics ‘just want to appear on TV’

Atlanta United star Thiago Almada claims critics of Lionel Messi’s Ballon d’Or award just want to “appear on TV”.

Lionel Messi won his record-extending eighth Ballon d’Or award last week. The Inter Miami striker, who played for Paris Saint-Germain last season, captained Argentina to the World Cup in Qatar, ending a 36-year wait.

The 36-year-old Messi finished above Erling Haaland who scored 52 goals for Manchester City as they won a treble last season.

Thiago Almada, who recently was named MLS Young Player of the Year, insists Messi deserved to win the Ballon d’Or award.

Almada has told TyC Sports: “We all know that Messi deserved the Ballon d’Or. there will always be comments from people who want to appear on TV.”

Messi won the Leagues Cup with Inter Miami, but they missed out on a place in the play-offs.
