Erling Haaland’s agent Rafaela Pimenta has reacted to the Norwegian missing out on the 2023 Ballon d’Or.
Argentina and Inter Miami superstar, Lionel Messi won the award for a record-extending eighth time in Paris last night.

However, Haaland’s agent feels his client deserves better and should have won the award.
Scoring over 50 goals last season, Haaland helped Manchester City win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League titles.
He was widely tipped to win the award this year but it was given to Messi who won the FIFA World Cup, Ligue 1 and Copa America in 2022.“We are so proud of you… and you deserve much more”, Erling Haaland’s agent Rafaela Pimenta says about the Ballon d’Or.
