Following Lionel Messi's triumphant eighth Ballon d'Or win on Monday, Erling Haaland conveyed his congratulations to the Argentine maestro. Despite missing out on the Ballon d'Or to Messi in Paris, the prolific goal scorer Haaland extended his felicitations to the soccer icon.

Norwegian striker Haaland took to social media, sharing Messi's Instagram story featuring the Golden Ball and wrote, “Felicitaciones @LEOMESSI,” signifying "Congratulations." Despite his incredible tally of 52 goals across all competitions and securing a treble with Manchester City, Haaland secured the second spot behind the 36-year-old Messi, who notably steered Argentina to World Cup victory in Qatar last year.

Messi, acknowledging Haaland's remarkable feats from the previous season, hinted at the possibility that the City forward might have clinched the trophy this year. This gesture came after Messi received the prestigious award for the eighth time in his illustrious career, demonstrating mutual respect and sportsmanship between the two football stars.
