Team PSG decided to celebrate the feat by doing something special for their hero and thus they were spotted wearing special edition kits for the Ligue 1 2021-22 match against Monaco. The members of PSG donned the jersey that consisted of their traditional blue home strip with gold numbers and names. By winning his seventh Ballon d'Or Lionel Messi defeated the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and others. However, Robaldo was not the favourite to win the prized possession this year. Kylian Mbappe's Brace Takes PSG to a 2-0 Win Over Monaco in Ligue 1 2021-22 Match (Watch Goal Highlights).

However, players like Toni Kroos, Thiago Silva and many others were quite unhappy with the decision. In fact, these players took to social media and posted their views on how Messi did not deserve the award. A few fans on social media also believed that Robert Lewandowski was the one who deserved the award and he was robbed.
