Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has been named as FIFA’s player for the men category at the Best FIFA Football Awards in Milan beating Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk.
This makes the sixth time the Barcelona’s player has been voted the best player in the world.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp won the men’s coach of the year. Klopp was nominated for the award along with two other Premier League bosses – Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola and Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino.
Goalkeeper Alisson was also a winner as he took the best goalkeeper prize ahead of Manchester City’s Ederson and Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa won the fair play award after he ordered his team to allow Aston Villa to score an uncontested equaliser during their 1-1 draw in their Championship match in April.
Eighteen-year-old Daniel Zsori won the Puskas award for the best goal with his spectacular 93rd-minute overhead kick for Debrecen against Ferencvaros, just after he came on as a substitute for his Hungarian league debut in February.
