Best Fifa Football Awards 2019 result: Lionel Messi beats Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo to men's prize


Barcelona's Lionel Messi won the best men's player at the Best Fifa Football Awards in Milan as Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk missed out on the top prize.

It is the sixth time Messi has been voted the best player in the world.


Messi, who won the Spanish La Liga title with Barcelona last season as well as the European golden boot having scored 54 goals in 58 games in all competitions, last won the award in 2015.

He did not, however, enjoy success with the national team, losing in the copa America semi-finals to rivals Brazil

His win is somewhat of a surprise with Van Dijk, a centre back who transformed Liverpool's defense on their way to the Champions league crown, having won the European best player award.


messi's win at the La Scala Opera house in Milan marks a return to dominance of the Argentine and Ronaldo, who between them have won the award all but once since 2007.
