Adidas Release a Platinum Boot to Celebrate Lionel Messi’s 5th Ballon d’Or

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi picked up the fifth Ballon d’Or of his career yesterday and Adidas have marked the occasion by releasing a special platinum boot in his honour.

The talented Argentine, who is understandably being labelled as the best ever after his recent victory, won 41.33 percent of the vote, meaning he surpassed both long-term rival Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona teammate Neymar.

While most of your friends would probably tip their hat to you or maybe even buy you a drink, Leo’s pals over at Adidas decided to release a new boot to celebrate.

And it’s an absolute rasper…

The last eight Ballon d’Ors have been won by either Messi or Ronaldo, however Neymar was also considered to be a serious contender given his early season form in Messi’s absence through injury.

Yet its hard to argue a case for either Ronaldo or Neymar, especially when you look at Messi’s statistics for the last calendar year.

Not only did the 28-year-old lead Barcelona to an incredible treble, he also scored 52 goals and grabbed 26 assists in 61 games.
