Lionel Messi won the Men’s Player of the Year accolade for a record third time at The FIFA Best Awards ceremony in London.

  • Only Cristiano Ronaldo has achieved the same feat

The Argentina captain, 36, finished ahead of Erling Haaland in a vote tie-break thanks to receiving more first-choice nominations from national team captains, with the pair tied on 48 points.

Manchester City striker Haaland was unlucky to miss out on another award after achieving a record-breaking Premier League scoring total of 36 goals last term and helping the Citizens win the Treble.

Messi netted 16 goals and registered the same number of assists for Paris Saint-Germain in the 2022-23 Ligue 1 season before making a blockbuster move to Inter Miami, where he lifted the Leagues Cup last August. โปรโมชั่น ufabet
