Paris, 27 Feb. Argentinian Leo Messi was voted best FIFA player of the season on Monday, including the World Cup in Qatar, five months after not even being on the list of 30 candidates for the Ballon d’Or.
The Rosario man edged out the other two finalists, France’s Karim Benzema, winner of the Ballon d’Or, and Kylian Mbappé, top scorer at the World Cup last year.
Messi, chosen in Qatar as the best player in the World Cup, where he finished second goalscorer with 7 goals, to which he added three assists, adds a new personal award at 35, the second The Best, after the one obtained in 2009, a prize to the one who was finalist in 2016, 2017, 2020 and 2021.
