Of course, in this matter, the recipient of the most bricks and stones is Ronaldo. There are even many newspapers around the world that have expressed puzzlement with the 38-year-old superstar's actions.
Typically, in Argentina - where of course it is necessary to stand up to the actions of the Portuguese superstar to protect the football legend of their country. Accordingly, Ole Miss newspaper has published a post criticizing Ronaldo and insisting he is just annoyed by Messi's glory.

"Ronaldo is not even among the 30 candidates for the 2023 Ballon d'Or. He liked the post defaming Messi and also commented with four laughing emojis. Well, it seems that the author of that post wasn't the only one who suffered to see Messi voted the best player in the world."
Even England – the country Ronaldo played for and won their last Ballon d'Or title in 2008, there has been criticism directed at CR7. "What is that action, Ronaldo? A "shameless" move by Cristiano Ronaldo in response to extravagant claims that Lionel Messi has "stolen" 3 Ballon d'Or," The Sun wrote.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo was also puzzled by the 38-year-old's actions. "Even if Cristiano Ronaldo had absolutely nothing to do with the ceremony because he was not named, he still caused controversy by concurring with a post by a journalist who did not support Messi's victory," the source wrote
Notably, while the world media is reacting harshly to Ronaldo's actions, only in Portugal - the 38-year-old's home country is gentle with him. Commenting on the incident, CNN wrote: "Cristiano Ronaldo subtly reacts to Lionel Messi's eighth Ballon d'Or victory."
In fact, this is not the first time Ronaldo has caused controversy immediately after the Argentine superstar was honored in the Ballon d'Or. In 2021, he did the same with the famous quote "Factos" when he supported a post demeaning El Pulga's title at the time.

Worth mentioning, not only Cristiano Ronaldo but 1 other former player also voiced criticism of the 2023 Ballon d'Or a.ward when Messi is the winner. Former Germany captain Lothar Matthaus disagreed with the result and told Sky that Haaland deserved better than the Argentine superstar. He even used the word "farce" to describe the 36-year-old w.inning the a.ward.

"For more than a year, Haaland has performed better than Messi," Matthaus said. He added: "Messi doesn't deserve to win the Ballon d'Or. The World Cup title is given undue importance, more than all other awards. For me, Haaland is the best player in the last 12 months, having won major trophies with City. He also broke many scoring records. The result is a farce, even though I'm also a Messi fan."

After this sharing of Matthaus went viral, there were many mixed opinions. Because in the past, he has repeatedly voiced support for Messi but this time suddenly turned his back on the Argentine superstar. On social media, a series of fans have defended the Inter Miami captain.

In particular, when Ole Miss newspaper republished Matthaus' statement, midfielder Angel Di Maria – Messi's close friend at Argentina bluntly responded: "Find another place and cry."

It is known that Lionel Messi has scored 7 goals, contributed 3 assists on Argentina's journey to win the 2022 World Cup. In the PSG shirt, the 36-year-old striker also contributed directly to 41 goals. However, when he played with PSG, he was eliminated early in the C1 Cup.

And this is the tournament where striker Haaland and his teammates are crowned. In the season of scoring 52 goals, the 23-year-old striker with City also won the English Premier League and FA Cup. Therefore, some new people think that Haaland deserves more than Messi. However, as of now, the specific voting score of the 2023 Ballon d'Or has not been revealed.
