SportsTalk reported on October 31 that Messi won his eighth Golden Globe Award, and 24-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic also came to the award ceremony. In an interview, Djokovic did not hesitate to praise Messi.
“Being able to see the greatest player in the world like Messi here is a very special experience for everyone. Everyone expects him to win another Ballon d’Or. Although Mbappe and Haaland had great seasons, Messi is clearly on another level.”
“Tennis and football have a lot of similarities, especially in terms of preparation and mentality for a championship. Messi is one of the greatest players in history when it comes to dealing with difficulties and pressure. Argentina’s performance showed that. He is a true legend.”
