Lionel Messi nominated for UEFA Men’s Player of the Year


Lionel Messi has been nominated for the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year.

Messi is one of three candidates for the award. The World Cup winner is up against Manchester City’s treble winners Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland.

The 36 year old won the World Cup with the Argentina national team and was named as the World Cup’s best player. With Paris Saint-Germain, he won Ligue 1 while also winning the Trophée des Champions.

The Argentine has previously won the award twice. The winner will be announced on August 31.


  1. 21 days left for WCQ..still no updates when scaloni will give his team. with mancini gone hope they won’t come for Argentine player anymore. I hope they pick few new players.

  2. Scoring 2 against Burnley , a recently promoted team to Premiere league is one thing and scoring another 50+ goals is another thing, especially without DeBrunne, Mahrez and Gundogaan! City has been weaked with these three out of the picture and if Haaland can maitain his form and even score 30+ goals this season , only then he will be a serious contender for the best player. Messi , a hybrid of Maradona and Pele, a player who is either deep down the midfield creating chances after chances or upfront causing havoc, deserves this award and the upcoming BallonDor!
