Ballon d'Or 2019 winner leaked?

Virgil van Dijk should win the 2019 Ballon d'Or, says "Messi's number one fan" Steven Gerrard.

Amid leaked reports that FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has won the 2019 Ballon d'Or award, an incredible prediction that was made seven years ago has now resurfaced.

But Gerrard, now a Rangers coach, while claiming to be a "Messi fan", has no doubt that the Liverpool defender should get the prize.

Speaking after Rangers' Europa League 2-2 draw with Feyenoord on Thursday, Gerrard was quoted by Goal as saying when asked by a Dutch reporter if Van Dijk should win the 2019 Ballon D' Or: "Yes, 100%". I love the player.

Maltese prosecutors charge prominent businessman as accomplice in Daphne Caruana Galizia case
It was the first time since independence from Britain in 1964 that the Labour Party had won two successive elections in Malta. Three men - brothers Alfred and George Degiorgio and their friend Vincent Muscat - with triggering the bomb itself.

Van Dijk finished second behind Messi at FIFA's The Best Awards in September. Obscene numbers in his game in terms of assists and goals.

Van Dijk was named Uefa Player of the Year in August after helping Liverpool win last season's Champions League and leading the Netherlands to the final of the inaugural Nations League final last summer, which signalled he was favourite to be recognised as the world's best player by France Football.

Van Dijk failed to win Premier League but enjoyed a prosperous season under Jurgen Klopp as he was an integral part of the indomitable Liverpool squad that won Champions League.

Messi, meanwhile, is now preparing with the rest of the Barcelona squad for a crucial trip to Wanda Metropolitano to face Atletico Madrid in La Liga on Sunday night.
