Lionel Messi named Best FIFA Men's Player Award 2019

Lionel Messi has been named 2019 FIFA Best Player.

Messi beat Liverpool and Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo to lift the title, after guiding his Barcelona side to the La Liga title.

Despite winning the Champions League and leading Netherlands to the finals of the Nations League, Virgil Van Dijk missed out on the biggest individual accolade in Europe.

He takes the crown from Real Madrid ace Luka Modric, who broke Messi and Ronaldo's dominance last year, following an impressive year for both club and country. 

 

 

The award was decided by national team coaches and captains, select members of the media and online voting.
