Lionel Messi’s dad has taken to his Instagram page to has hit out at the critics of his son’s seventh Ballon d’Or title.

Messi got his hands on an unprecedented seventh title on Monday night, November 29 eclipsing Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski by 33 points.

Voices from around the world of football have slated the outcome and claimed Lewandowski was more deserving after his prodigious scoring form across the last two seasons. He scored 23 goals more than Messi in 2021 and won the Bundesliga.

Now Messi’s father Jorge has spoken out, captioning a picture of his son: ‘Bla bla bla… continue.’

Messi finally won a title on the international stage this year with Argentina – the Copa America – while also lifting the Copa del Rey with Barcelona.
