Breaking: Messi wins Best Fifa Men’s Player award + other winners


first_imgRelatedPosts Barca president Bartomeu says he won’t go to war anymore with Messi Messi scores twice in Barca friendly Messi becomes football’s second billionaire + Top 10 Lionel Messi has been named the Best Men’s Player at the Best Fifa Football Awards, beating Cristiano Ronaldo and Virgil van Dijk to the annual prize. Messi has another 12 months to celebrate but again found the game’s top prizes out of his reach. Barcelona won La Liga once again as Messi was the top scorer across Europe and provided the most assists in Spain’s top flight. However, a semi-final second-leg collapse at Anfield saw Barca miss out in the Champions League once again as Liverpool scored 4-0 to seal a remarkable 4-3 aggregate win. On the international stage, Messi suffered another semi-final exit as Argentina lost 0-2 to Brazil in the Copa America in July before beating Chile in the third-place play-off. After nine years at Real Madrid, Ronaldo moved to Juventus last summer in a deal worth £100 million looking for a new challenge at the age of 33 and was named Serie A’s most valuable player 10 months later after winning the Scudetto. Ronaldo finished as club’s top scorer in every domestic competition he competed in before leading Portugal to Uefa Nations League glory over the summer. The forward scored a hat-trick in the semi-final win over Switzerland before captaining the final win over Netherlands in Porto. Van Dijk is widely regarded as the best centre-back in the world, with the eyebrow-raising £75 million price Liverpool for him in January 2018 now considered a bargain. Liverpool have been transformed from a vulnerable defence to among the best in Europe, culminating with their Champions League triumph in June of this year after finishing as runners-up 12 months prior. Such is his calmness in possession, Van Dijk went 50 games without being dribbled past between March 2018 and August 2019, which was key to the Reds’ agonising finish as runners-up behind Manchester City in the Premier League after winning 97 points.THE WINNERS BEST MEN’S PLAYER Lionel Messi – Barca BEST WOMEN’S PLAYER Megan Rapinoe – USABEST MEN’S COACH Jurgen Klopp – LiverpoolBEST WOMEN’S COACH Jill Ellis (USA)BEST MEN’S GOALKEEPER Alisson Becker – LiverpoolBEST WOMEN’S GOALKEEPER Sari van Veenendaal – Holland PUSKAS AWARD Daniel Zsori – Fehérvár FCFIFA BEST FAN AWARD Silvia GreccoFAIR PLAY AWARD Leeds UnitedFIFPRO BEST XI GOALKEEPER Alison BeckerDEFENDER Sergio Ramon Virgil Van Dijk Marcelo De Ligt MIDFIELDER Luka Modric De Jong Eden HazardFORWARD Lionel Messi Cristiano Ronaldo Mbappe.Tags: Best FIFA Football AwardsCristiano RonaldoLionel MessiVirgil van Dijklast_img
