In the final result, according to the statistics, you announced De Bruyne as the winner. I checked all the numbers in general and in detail, but you did not say correctly. As a neutral, you must declare the truth in determining the outcome of the person and the elected person. It is clear that you have declared the result based on personal interest and prejudice. Actually, according to your analysis, Messi was better than Kevin, please don't tell anyone falsely (I mean De Bruyne)
