Messi named La Liga Best Player of the Year

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, was named La Liga’s best player at the MARCA’s awards ceremony in Spain on Monday night.

Messi also received his sixth Pichichi Trophy award for the highest goal scorer in the 2018/19 La Liga season.

The 32-year-old was not present at the gala but spoke on a video accepting the award.

Messi said: “I will try to keep winning things, to keep growing. It’s a trophy that fills me with pride, to get to be the top scorer of this league, what it signifies. I’m happy to win it again.”

Messi recently won the Ballon d’Or and FIFA’s Best Player award this year.

The Argentine will now hope to lead Barcelona to victory when they take on Real Madrid in the La Liga El Clásico fixture on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou.
