Lionel Messi wins Best Fifa Men’s Player award over Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe at Paris ceremony

Argentine and PSG superstar Lionel Messi has won the Best FIFA Men’s Player of the year award after trailing his fellow teammate Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema behind.

Lionel Messi has been present for the seventh edition of FIFA’s best award-giving ceremony of the year at the capital of France where he played his club football.

The voting process opened via FIFA’s official website for the fans earlier and the result was announced as Messi became the best after National team captains, managers, and over 300 journalists as well as the fans votes got cast.

Lionel Messi has been superb throughout this year after displaying tremendous performance in the recently concluded FIFA World Cup where Argentina lifted the trophy beating France.

Messi was at the heart of everything that Argentina has achieved as the little magician scored twice in the final and claimed the Golden Ball after being nominated as the best player of the tournament.

FIFA initially announced 26 players on the shortlist for the best award and later only Messi, Mbappe, and Benzema were selected as the final three, but the Argentine won the prize comprehensively after claiming the maximum votes.

It was Messi’s second FIFA Best Award after previously winning the award back in 2019 as the Argentine is almost complete in terms of his personal and professional career achievements.

The only trophy yet to be won after participating in the Coupe de France as the greatest of all time has failed to keep hold of the trophy after Marseille knocked them out of the cup this season.

Lionel Messi is 35 but has no sign of slowing down as he continued to shine in big stags and pulled off staggering numbers and his impact on the pitch is immense to the team.


The Argentine has 37 goals and provided a further 30 assists in 55 appearances for the club and country as he reminded the whole World about the quality he possessed, even in the dying moments of his career.
