Should Van Dijk have won the Ballon d'Or this year?

Virgil van Dijk missed out on winning the 2019 Ballon d’Or after Lionel Messi picked up his sixth trophy.

Van Dijk had an incredible year, and to be counted among players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is an enormous accomplishment in itself.

Liverpool will be delighted regardless of Van Dijk not winning the award to see how many of their club’s stars were given much deserved credit for the club’s recent achievements.

Van Dijk may well have deserved the trophy, but it is difficult to feel that he has been cheated of it, because Messi is and has been this year so impressive, and he too deserved to win his sixth gong.

The Dutch defender was named alongside Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and teammate Sadio Mane in the competition’s final four, while other teammates Mohamed Salah and Allison were named in fifth and seventh place respectively.

I do agree with the sentiment of the final tweet, that if Van Dijk’s exploits this year weren’t enough to win the award then how can any defender expect to do so.
